Ujima

The diaspora possesses the answer key to be free
It requires collective responsibility to obtain unity
I must become WE in order to see over the humps
They'll still be speed bumps like the Donald Trumps

After centuries of lumps, we know what to expect
We need solidarity to successfully take our respect
We'll never get far by inflicting scars on each other
We must say yes to being keepers of our brothers

Protectors of our sisters no matter the expense
Slavery threw a monkey wrench & was a hindrance
To our progress but didn't stop us; we're still here
In the jungle & can't fumble with the goal line near
