IT'S A NEW DAY


We gon be

outa sight black/men

gon be part/

gon rule like Nyerere

gon believe like King believed

gonna be TCB/ing black men

as we walk in our red/yellow/suns


We gon be some

beautiful/black/women

gon move like the queens we be

gon be full/

time MUSLIM woman

gon be strong as Sojourner

gon be as gentle as

sister Clotelle's smile

gon be the poetry of gwendolyn's words

gon be the green south of fannie lou hamer

gonna be as warm as an african nite

while walken like songs


we gon be some badddDDD people

just you wait and see

we gon be some badddDDD people

just you wait and see...
