Change the Hand of Time

by 1st Poet

I'm programming my mind to what it use to know

Returning to my ancestor's of long ago

Who am I that this "DNA" has come thus far?

What happened to my ancestor's those unclean hands keep trying to hide

Massing created stories to cover up time

Yet my mind remember back in time this "DNA" keep pushing a reset button to rewind


My ancestor's spirit calling me to never forget

The shores upon which my ancestor's left

It's a new day and truth is on the rise

Who have I become over time?

Programmed with the slave masters mind

Taught to forget my own African roots

I got to find my way back to what my "DNA" knows

My spirit is grieving to tell a story of long ago
