Hold On My Soul

By Ashieka Daniels

My eyes have seen the innocent slain in the streets
And lay for hours
My ears have heard the cries of mothers
And of fathers
My heart is filled with a passion to see justice truly revealed
Tell me
Is it justice or Just Us
Against a system designed to enslave us
For yet another 400 years

Sold on the stock market workin’ for free
Set up never to regain a piece of dignity

I often feel we’re in a no will battle
Until I am reminded that Jah will fight for me

Hold on my soul
Don’t get tired
Hold on my soul
Don’t get weak
For we fight for liberty and peace
Hold on my soul.
