within me, my ancestry

Washington, DC
May, 2008

‘i’m coming home to my family
where i can be strong
be who i planned to be
within me, my ancestry
givin’ me continuity

like a lifeline i light lines cause my compassion is deep
for the people who fashioned me, my soul to keep
and this is who i happen to be
and if i don’t see that i’m strong then i won’t be

i make haste to learn and not waste
everything my forefathers earned in tears
for my culture’

(music: 1 Giant Leap feat. Robbie Williams & Maxi Jazz – My Culture)
