I Live To See the View
I done been some places.
Yeah, I’ve even seen some things,
I’ve seen birds trying to fly, with broken wings.
I’ve seen many forget the HUMAN in “Human Being.”
I done seen the moon, reject the sun.
I’ve seen parents abandon & devour their young.
I’ve seen the battles one goes through when they don’t hold their tongues.
(((LoL!))) Baby! I done seen some things.
I’ve seen many jump in ignorance, hatred & violence,
Innocents perish from the blast.
I’ve seen many white-washing cultural atrocities-hiding the past.
Heck, I’ve even seen the homeless, giving others their last.
Shit! I’ve seen children turn against their Mothers, Brothers against Brothers, Our Women hating & warring with one another.
I’ve seen people go crazy for becoming lost lovers.
Uh-Uh-Uh! I tell you! I’ve seen some things.
I’ve seen the worst of things, turn out for the good, I’ve seen Love & Unity within the Hood.
I’ve seen many turn blind-eyes, to the systematic destruction,
hoping to be good slaved zombies, for the NWO’s Plantation.
I’ve seen what I can, I’ve seen what I wasn’t, I’ve seen the Universe within Self,
sharing the reflections.
I’ve seen the power of the gentle touch of a hand,
as lips mouth the words “I Love You”, the answer, sadly many do not understand…
I’ve done seen some things.
And throughout this life,
“I live to see the view.”
