Freedom


Big walls sink in the name of freedom
Free is a state in your mind
Authors dead in flesh
This is more than lines, hooks and rhymes
I am talking about Inkatha and the 4 sits won
I confer about Mbuya Nehanda and how she was hung
Same with brother Luther and how he was shot
Silence! ! ! Listen to the echoes remaining and pass them along
Does your dialect speak freedom to all
or it talks about how women are small
Are you a freedom rider or a freedom hider
better is a freedom fighter than a freedom loser
Let your claws be shown, than cut by the unknown
Are you scared to join Steven? , but at the end his pillars will never be thrown
I am not talking about black or white, Shona or Ndebele
I am preaching about the emancipation of mental slavery
Something more disturbing than adultery
A God given right to mankind
and why do you make it an issue between black and white
I am talking about Malcom X and Bobby Seale fighting against racism
Trayvon Martin born 5|2|95 shot for noiseless reasons
Big walls will sink in the name of freedom

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
