Brown Footprints

by The Brown Suga Poet

I can only take the steps that my feet will go
following footsteps that were left for me
from people who had no shos on their feet...
no pillows when they sleep
no food to eat
just hope
to cope
just hope
to cope
just faith
to relay
for the next day
just bills to pay
with no money
don't you know     They made it
cause I am here
and you are here
                   They made it
on the boat
in the darkness
change your name
you are all the same
but                They made it
masters whip engraved on brown hips
and we are still marked
we are still marked
still marked
we can make it
