WHAT DO YOU SEE
WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME
A BLACK PERSON CHAINED
OR A BLACK PERSON IN SHAME
A BLACK PERSON IN PAIN
FROM WHIP LASHES ON THEIR BACK
HMM. WELL HOW BOUT THAT
DO YOU DO THIS CAUSE OF WHAT YOU SEE
FROM WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME
ARE YOU THAT INTIMEDATED BY MY LOOKS
OR ARE YOU SCARED OF MY EYES
AS YOU COME TO FINALLY REALIZE
WHAT YOU’VE BEEN MISSING ALL ALONG
THAT YOU CAN FINALLY DO NO WRONG
THAT YOU SEE A PROUD NATION
OF INDEPENDENT BLACKS
AND DON’T YOU DARE
TRY AND TAKE PITY ON THHAT
CAUSE IT’S NOW TIME THAT YOU FINALLY REALIZE
THAT I’M FINALLY FREE
FREE TO BE ME
NO MORE GETTING ON MY KNEES
SAYING “ OH MASA PLEASE”
CAUSE I’M FREE AT LAST
AND I’M GOING TO HAVE A BLAST
BE MY OWN BOSS
CONTRIBUTE TO THE CAUSE
CAUSE THERE’S A NEW TIME
IN WHICH WHAT I DO IS FINE
IN WHICH MY DAYS ARE FREE
I’M FREE TO JOURNEY
I’M FREE TO BE WHAT I WANT TO BE
CAUSE I’M FREE TO BE ME
SO I ASK YOU WHAT DO YOU SEE
WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME





THESE ARE MY WORDS




NEVER LOST NORE FORGOTTEN
