The Awakening

In His Own Words by Nas and Damian Marley
Distant Relatives album

The Awakening

Blessings and gifts acquired
Fought for my inheritance
Not by happenstance
but with implanted pressure
To up measure
and to meet the needs of those who
reside in spiritual poverty with lesser
I did it for the seedlings who watch
from their microscopes
taking conduct notes
of my expressions
in the petri dish below
Self-made man
African Ameri-CAN
do all things with the strength of the Lamb
I did it designed as divinely planned
Be fruitful and multiply positive vibes
to the lost tribes
in this Western land of Christian values demised
Advance perspectives away from the dunes of gloom
awaits in their fates if light isn’t given room
Those who are wise are given instrumental mental eyes
To see
To decipher
and expose
the wiles and the lies
To hear cries 
of extinction begun
Don’t run!
You are the change
you wish to reflect in your eyes
After many tries
The worn checkered board 
and sense of reality will collide
And the flowing veil
before thee will rise
And you can see the sway of pointed tails
and the reflection of flames in their eyes
