I was born into a world of “legal” segregation
I’m talkin, I was walkin’ when apartheid ended
Mandela and ANC ended the apartheid’s separation
We talkin’ less than 3 decades ago — in South Africa!
Just about 6 decades ago — in the States of Ameri-K-K-Ka
You thinkin’ our cryin’
Been us lyin’?
You think the state of mind
Of our government
Isn’t advised from the unconscious?
Tribulations of the racist minds’,
wands, probing the naked eye–
We are more than the labels of di-ver-si-ty
Is due to the faults of the hands of human power
Where thievery and deceit have ruled the world
Can this wretched his-story…
Or are we still chained
By the media’s
Children learning to swipe before they grasp fine motor skills,
or express their words
Before learning their sounds–
Please tell em’ stories
Read em’ stories and discuss the moment they hear you in your womb
Enter their room
Open up new vaults
To create and store forthcoming knowledge to groom
To inspire and embrace
A changing faith
Let’s change their face
Wave a wand back
In fact we aren’t doomed–
Change the pace
For the betterment of the human race.
Thanks for reading ya’ll considering doing this for spoken word soon!
