This is For My People...We Rising now
I see it . I see it !
I see the blackhole of hate racing to my presence , then into my veins.
I hate it , but it consumes me every minute I am around it.
I don't understand , why I can't live without it chasing me down. I'm just human or so I thought.
wait I see it clearly now. The injustice of the unjust who ain't worthy of life is the target now.
Just look at Emmett ,Sean , Oscar and now young Trayvon now , standing for its people who been shot down.
But, of course Injustice follows every generation, never realizing its worsening the sitatuion.
STOP IT ! Stop it I say , but what can I do ? I'm just another Bell , Till ,Grant and Martin now.
I wanna just live , change the world , try to keep the peace but they just keep shutting me down.
I'm tryna raise my voice , but everytime I try they kill more of my people.
Is it just me or is it my people ?
Black , Puerto Rican , West Indian , Indian , African , Trinidadian we all a race of people who should be livin' equal.
My skin a lil darker than yours...SO WHAT ! When you cut our veins , the same blood spills ...
the same pain feels and same sins are reveal. Guess what ? You can't phase me or my people.
cause the more you kill and batter the more we rise up .Every man,woman and child has a choice..what will be yours ?
You can join the killin' race , or be the nation of equals.
SPREAD THE PEACE ! SPREAD THE LOVE ! SPREAD THE UNITY !
Cause together we will RISE
