Wake Up My People

By Ashieka Daniels

Wake up my people
My beautiful, beautiful people

Black skinned
Brown skinned people

You in a haze in this maze my people
Confused yet amused by the abuse of this system

Yellow skinned
Red skinned people

WAKE UP…..

Elders Morn for my people
Even angles cry for my people
Others stare at my people
What have we become

Wake up my people
My beautiful beautiful people

Wake up, it’s time to wake up
Wake up please wake up
You’ve been sleep to long

WAKE UP

AIN’T NOTHING CHANGED IN 50TH YEARS MY PEOPLE
STOP TAKING HAND OUTS AND HAND ME DOWNS
WHATEVER HAPPEN TO
ONE NATION UNDER GOD INDIVISABLE
WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL
Liberty and justice for all?
LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!
For all?
FOR ALL!

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO WE THE PEOPLE
We the people?
YES WE THE PEOPLE

Wake up my people
My beautiful beautiful people
