Image for the poem new liberation song

new liberation song

time to dance a new world in
to weigh life’s load from within
without a clue how to begin
we’ll just sit awhile - with 7 deadly sins

our righteous groove is gone
so from our hearts we’ll sing a song
our jailbreak of souls will be elegant and strong
if we’ll meet humbly with what’s gone wrong

to this earth we plead forgiveness
we’ve strangled our host because - good business
while confidence blocked us with dreams of our fitness
a flood of impudent truth rose up in our basements

Lord God Universe and all Benevolent Spirits
help us embrace our truth, not fear it
please gift us the light of your love and wild spirit
so that we can feel your warmth as we near it

and to our sisters and brothers,
to all of those we’ve yet to discover:

we stand for liberation
we stand for a brand new nation
yeah!


if our true Red White & Blues seek unity
they’ll harness the power of this vital diversity
then other Reds, Blacks and Greens
won’t be nearly as scary as they now seem

It's more than a dream if you dig what we mean

It stands for liberation
