Arise and Shine

Arise and shine
shine for the light has come
Come back to your sense
Sense the brutality brought through racism
Racism and coup between the black and whites
Whites whom think that blacks are only living apes
Apes, Yes, we attract tourists
Tourists from different cardinal points in the world
World of survival for the fittest
Fittest who will dine together and manifest their ideas
Ideas which will always seem common
Common to the blacks who once bitten twice shy
Shy not, stand up you are a champion
Champion of your own worthyness
Worthyness and dignity to say no to mourning
Mourning every chilly mornings
Mornings when some arise
Arise to shine whole others to mourn their departed souls.
