Defiance October 3, 2007

I was born on one Thursday

in the middle of chaotic display:

Lagos go-slow

stuck in colonial times

that taught us that

we must fall apart

 

But in my heart

and my soul too

I just knew that my body

must go to

Turtle Island

to heal like I’m supposed to

in order to realize

beyond these crooked lies

that we’re worthless,

wicked worshippers,

evil people saved by the crucifix,

Jesus-loving marching foot soldiers,

Doing just what the masta told ya –

destroying minds

and our lives

now I’m healed and here to remind

that we are living

 

In defiance

justifiably being righteous

It’s ‘cause we’re born

to play this part –

moving along with truth

that speaks to our hearts

 

In America –

“Gods own people”

Propaganda used to deceive you –

I became a restless warrior

Intiated to my clan

clentched fist of the hand

I studied oracles

and miracles

and rituals

and yoga

and chi gong

and love

and life

with no need for

a gun or a knife

I training to be a

Mid-wife and mother

for this prophecied

new nation,

Venus called me

to this destination

Star children reunite,

We’ve got much to fight!

 

Because we’re living

in defiance

justifiably being righteous

It’s ‘cause we’re born

to play this part –

moving along with truth

that speaks to our hearts

 

Globalizing revelation

telepathic communication –

tune up your rebel frequency!

letting ancestors move you

to destiny

and in me

you’ll see you

and when I act

I’ll reflect you:

 

Black people warriors of sea

Red people mothers of the earth

Brown people shamans of the air

White people keepers of the fire

and all people must desire

to be free

in order to see that

 

We’re living

In defiance  

justifiably being righteous

It’s ‘cause we’re born

to play this part –

moving along with truth

that speaks to our hearts
