And there was a time I was bitter
A time where all this could have been yours
But you were busy trying to play me. My lord saved me from all your bullets. I’d have dreams warning me about the reality
Today is the day I count all my blessings
Running round town trying to make me feel sour
Stop running save yourself the hours
You most definitely played yourself
Everyday is a new day to fight
We are gathering to take what is ours
The road to freedom is in unity
And so brothers and sisters let’s not see colour
Look beyond the rays and match forward with integrity
Burning down gates of excellcious egoism
You Scream I want it all
I Scream this is not all
Not enough to undo the dids
The costs are higher than you claim
You take take take and give back none
Every day I wake up to a globalized world
But you swept the bills under the rug
Those third world countries you created
Can they be first again?
The souls of my ancestors
They’ll keep jumping into new flesh
They’ll keep demanding royal crest
We unit through freedom or we unit after war
I See you are generous to many
Just not to one
Its trending notoriously, how you hit the weak harder and the strong lesser.
I accept you are some type of common good I struggle to obtain
The price is high after tasting freedom
Female empowerment comes with an opportunity cost, the world is yet to encounter
And so the blame is not on you Love
The more I feel empowered
the longer is my list
I won’t bother chasing you
Instead I’ll sit right here
I’ll wait for you to choose me
I’ll watch how you stumble and fall
I’ll turn the tables around
You’d think I’m bitter by now
But I’m soft and sweet and unique
Catch me if you can..
Standing eye to eye but you refuse to see me
Is there no room for us both, Tell me?
Cause each time I get louder
you go silent.
Sworn to you countless times, my success could never deminish yours
I tried bringing back the spark, you know?
Thrill, Notion, Seductivity .. Innumerable efforts all futile
What a shame my physique comes with my mind
What a shame integrity is here to stay
Cause when I finally found my voice
Positivity becomes a choice
Life is a choice.
And If you’ve ever had to
Set foot outside your comfort zone
Then you know this;
Egg shells don’t break your bones
You will carry your skin like elaborated embroidery.
Soul congealed, indurated, woke
And apted you rise
I rest my case
They say you attract what you put out.
At this point, if you’re not some magical wonder of God
