Lioness Rising ::: ROAR!


There's a passion burning deep within me.
Telling me to fight against oppression
subjugation
racism
slavery.

My spirit is growling.
Vexed!
Cursing the systems which have been put in place to disenfranchise the African race
Babylon system!


A roar is bubbling in my soul
a roar so mighty that it will shake the earth to its core
toppling buildings
markers of civilization
built upon the blood sweat and tears of the African slave
in this foreign land.
Babylon!

I want to shout out against inhumanity
underdevelopment
inequality
the glass ceiling.

The spirit of my ancestors is now awake within me
crying out for justice
and it will not be tamed
it will not be pacified

My spirit is now chanting
chanting
chanting for the release of our people!
For we are still not yet free...

Slavery might have been abolished but its consequences can be seen throughout time
defining our lives
our past
our present
our futures.

There is a roar bubbling inside my soul
a lioness' roar!
an empress' roar!
Raaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaas...!!!!!!

...Tafari.
