~Enduring To be Free~

Updated on November 12, 2012

~Prologue~

Transcending from a world of mental and physical bondage...

Source

~Breaking Free~

I am like the wind gliding against rivers of waters of streams

crossing vast oceans embracing miracles unseen

I taste life though it be bitter sweet

filled with the remnants of our ancestors decree

still I hear distant thunder crying out vigorously, sweeping across mountains bursting intensively

collapsing against glacial abstracts formed over centuries, wailing through turbulent borders of emotional grief, chained to an existence of unresolved disbelief

crushing against life forging ahead, leaving footprints on lonesome terrain for the next generation to reclaim

must I carry this hardened decree, this monstrous turbulance of tyranny, do I shelter the substance of obscurity, that slumbers beneath the mantle of history

or do I devour every inch of its nobility, that has far to long ruled with tenuous persistency, while slumbering beneath the mantle of all our old pleas

what more do I have to endure to be free, how do I rid myself of immutable uncertainty, have our souls been massacred enough, shedded centuries of blood that sealed our ancestors love

bore the lash with scathed remorse, gave birth to a nation in the belly of a curse, how long will our spirits be off course

I can still hear our ancestors cries, hear their rattling bones, finding myself yielding to the sound of familar moans clattering together inside of me, how long will I have to endure to be free
