"Retracing her steps"


Dear Oumi;
These days are cold
I long for your sweet geen tea
ur international'e dishes
from the places you've been and seen
no sight of a strong black queen
but dilluted figures that I cant seem to recongnize
and im still blossoming
into the woman im destine to be
Mez'yan, thank Allah
for giving me the strength to always rise
As the sun awakes in the east
I'm in the west
wondering if your also staring across these waters
in search for your resembelance but with dark brown curls
that are in need for ur care
and yes im using olive oil to moisture my hair
im still using saffron on my king fish
no wurry, my jeans are not riding below my waist
nani's jewlery hasnt been replaced
five months and I'll be back home
now walkin upon english roads
what is a world without promises
the word is important to all
even if their spoken lies and stories
the truth has made us so dependent
that I need you to be there if I fall
we walk these streets everyday
with no values of life
breathing polluted air
that has absorbed the stitch of dead bodies and dollar bills
now listen
while ur consuming artifical substances
that is reducing ur life expansion
investing in drug wars
where our presidents are the main hustlers
dey got u hook
ur in debt from the local liquor store
where ur accesible to the greatest weapon of mass destruction
while their savoring the sweet fruit of ur labor
they call benefits, people like u bein employed at retail stores
preaching education is the key
but only nourishing you with HIS-story
we have all been victimized by intellectuals who lack sensibilty
who have never awoke to cryin babies
who have only shed blood from a paper cut
while sigining millions of lifes away to be devoured
by the achievements of man
to protect his assests
intellectuals who have dis-belief that all that breaths is alive
what is a world without promises?
no existence, no power
no birth, no child
no written paper that allows me to speak
would you believe that some people fear to look
even those without vision have heard promises
