The soul that is within me no man can degrade.
I shout, I yell, I all but propel
My whole heart and soul into these words.
Power concedes nothing without demand.
His words echo in my mind
And my heart swells with agreement.
I think to myself
I am so sick of being stuck.
Stuck in my roles
Stuck under control
Stuck in my soles
Of these shoes that can’t run away.
Your words contain so much defiance.
But I want to join this alliance and start talking too.
The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of whom they oppose.
I will not obey their rules anymore.
I abhor their dictation on me and my life.
I want to be free, I want to stand tall
I want to be a part of liberty and justice for all.
So even though you are afraid
Nod and pray
And let us start talking as one.
