My Truth 2017

I speak my truth today,

Raise my voice as loud as I can,

And say,

To hell with playing nice

And observing the vice,

I speak the truth,

And roll down all the stones,

And the bones,

For all to hear my voice,

All to hear my truth,

Uncouth and not smooth,

But the truth

 

I speak beyond gender,

Oh yes,

I said it,

The battle of the sexes,

Supremacy of the men and the women,

And where do we get?

Endangered girl child and now,

Boy child,

A stupid battle,

That has broken marriages,

And destroyed the moral fabric

 

The truth about corruption,

Greedy servants of the people,

Like cats feeding on their own kittens,

Bleeding the economy dry,

So as to get enough to vie,

Thieves in suites,

Eating from both sides of the mouth,

Oh I say it like I see,

My truth,

My countries truth,

My people’s truth,

 

 I speak of the stripes of tribe,

Thick in ‘em minds,

Foolish of course,

That it’s okay for a country

to fall,

As long as it’s one of their own,

It is okay for them to suffer,

As long as they have the power,

Thick not to see it all gone down,

Thick enough not to see ‘em being used

Thick not to see that the shelves in the shops are dry,

Thick enough,

Never to ask hard questions

Hate me or love,

I speak the truth,

My truth

Just because his name is Omar,

He has light skin,

And curly hair,

They call him a terrorist,

They make light of his prayers,

Just because they don’t get it,

Come on!

Let’s speak the truth,

 

 

 

 

There are always a few bad apples

Even within us,

I don’t need to convince you, do I?

Let’s give them a break,

It’s all about peace,

And the love of God,

And if ever we claim to love God?

We should be slow to judge,

And quick to love,

 

I speak my truth today,

Raise my voice as loud as I can,

And say,

To hell with playing nice

And observing the vice,

I speak the truth,

And roll down all the stones,

And the borns,

For all to hear my voice,

All to hear my truth,

Uncouth and not smooth,

But the truth
