We can blame colonialism, capitalism, racism the world bank , globalisation and the IMF.
But one day, we may look in the mirror and find there is no longer anyone else to blame
And only the truth shall remain
And at that moment, we may feel a range of things
Perhaps ...should feel a range of things
At least then .. we will feel...something
Naked as you were born you stand
No longer able to hide behind our ego, our fallacies, our 'trinkets of mass repulsion'..'seduction'
No longer will we devalue our diamonds, and dull our gold
Recognise humanities truth worth
So what will we feel?
Perhaps even relief
For you can be enslaved, yet never a slave
Captive, yet never in bondage
Moneyless, but never poor
Let go of your intellect and 'free your mind'
What have you done for your brother lately?
What have you called your sister lately?
Free your heart
It’s been encased for to long
