Yea, It's time to receive the power Make a difference in the world So many gifts passed down through generations to uplift Like forklifts to lift amidst the enemy presence that Torrents like ocean currents to battleships This written composition is meant To give direction in discretion and discernment A hip hop sermon Entitled The power that's vital to living life among the idols That stifle even those who may tower like the Eiffel This power's vital Without it one is powerless to break the cycle Of curse dispersed from the same place the gifts were birthed in the first place Some say we a cursed race Cursed to follow slowly behind a hearse and forge license plates With fellow inmates but This power transcends the color of face Or the condition of your present place Only limited by your faith in the truth coming to light Yea without faith in the truth Your faith is wasted like a solar powered flashlight That's right until the last right Is all the time we have so I spit fire and speak passionately to advocate for my rights I know I haven't always been right Life and death is in the tongue For what I've done, Lord knows I will be held accountable I believe God's grace is more powerful Emmanuelle, God is with me in the land where I dwell Rise with me for the son of Jerell That we may bear fruit like Thaddaeus I speak depth from a death like Lazarus A Louisville outcast in this New York City where the police is blasting us Harassing us It's time to move fast because The power's now Power Power The Power's now The Power to see walk run jump feel the breeze Travel overseas Master the crafts of fine artistry Help raise children properly Sow into your family's economy Promote physical health and spirituality The Power's not futile meaningless nor a fallacy That's why we must act now so many live tragically And court death romantically for an increase in salary They'll let you suffer in a wheel chair with no health care While private jets burn more fuel in the air The children of the incarcerated live in despair Veterans return from tours to return to die to suicide I wish I could have talked to him could have asked him why What did he expect to see on the other side? That he could see now This world is so foul Yet still I smile The sun still shines on God's child The power's now The power power The power's now The power's now
