I look at you and I can see sadness on your face
I can feel the weight of the goodbye upon your shoulders
Your eyes brim with tears of farewell
And I ask myself, Why?
I turn to my God and ask, Why?
Why should people meet and cultivate the land of relationship,
And then leave before they can enjoy the fruits of their toil?
But I get no answer.
You have walked this road
Calculated the distances and set your destinations
This here place was your dream and your sweetheart
What has happened to that dream?
Has it turned into a nightmare?
Has your ...
Be A Man
I was yanked from my mother’s womb
Pushed into this world
Without a choice
Slapped on my behind
Without dignity and told,
Go out there and be a man
I was given toy cars and guns to play with
Thrown into this rough and tumble playground
