What is a people?

That live in the shame of their ignorance

Who are a people without the breath of wisdom

What is a people?

That lack ambition and drive

Who choose to stay in the shadows of the lame and wild

What is a people?

That are still weighed down by the chains of slavery

Who can’t see the future for the present is a blessing

What is a people?

That have no true ownership or material holdings

Who are now foreigners in their own land

What exactly is a people?

Is it a group of individuals treading water in haste to survive?

People who aren’t protected by the governments that swear they love them

Are a people divided?

On tribal lines but now gangs and cliques the times have changed but the poison is still quick

What is a people who don’t quit?

Same morals it’s the same game

Protect the wives and kids don’t get farmed

What is a people?

That see the light in darkness

Yet refuse to run to it

What is a people?

Aware of history

Yet rather bore in it

What is a people?

Without the root of their tree

Nothing more than a dried seed

What is a people?

The answer is with thee
