A Dream That They Hold

by Brother DeBuff

born out of woman
kicking out words
screaming songs of ancestors
world not ready
move of the out way
for information of loin path
we walked a long way 
seeking path
righteous to truths
of whom they be dreaming
they be we 
young black mind 
hold process to make a change
marching as sun people
as be in dreams of old gray head mothers
embracing time were sanko
bird's song of a strong blood
has not fail us 
look how
baby got grown
how the future be coming
all sudden it not like yesterday
no way will it be or can those people
get death out of our dreams
theory of fools to even try
reach out to stop the storms of progress
a dream that a nations can see in eyes of children
 that remember their ancestors pain
in the journey of greatness
will the coming tomorrow
be on time
