There's a passion burning deep within me.
Telling me to fight against oppression
My spirit is growling.
Cursing the systems which have been put in place to disenfranchise the African race
A roar is bubbling in my soul
a roar so mighty that it will shake the earth to its core
markers of civilization
built upon the blood sweat and tears of the African slave
in this foreign land.
I want to shout out against inhumanity
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 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
There is a roar bubbling inside my soul
a lioness' roar!
an empress' roar!
will never stop fighting for my freedom
