Civilization - Africa didnt get colonize if you ask me. I say it was
invaded. They knew exactly what was there and they came
specifically for that. It was all for economic gain, and
to strip us of our history so it would be hard to rise after
we have gained independence.
Unfortunately, they succeeded in
making us think of ourselves as less than they. We were
already civilized. We had our own culture; way of life. What
we wore, how we educated ourselves and what we thought success
was was not measured by material possessions.
Now the Africa you see looks to the west for almost everything.
We are trying to fit in and that's costing us more than we admit.
They laws in the west fit the condition and the economy of
their states, yet we adopt them here, which often becomes a disaster.
Time for Destiny - I wondered about this piece for a very long time and finally
made a beat that listening to it brought out the right
words. Although i feel there's more to be said, cos time is a broad
With this particular piece, i linked it with destiny so
that's what I should call it. "Time For Destiny." I see a lot of
people doing things that won't benefit them. Example: you go to school
and study for so many years and come out to work at a job you
are not passionate about, but the money is good, so you keep doing it anyway.
It's safe for you. Going the hard way and starting your own
thing is too much work. The stress of it always comes at a higher cost though
People waste time doing things, cooking food, drinking all
type of stuff that will eventually kill them. But doing what they love,
eating and living right will energize them mind, body and spirit.
This poem talks about you being aware of yourself and knowing every second
is important.Spending 15 years of your life finding what you are destined
to do is not a waste of time, simply because when that time comes and
you have it all figured out, there will be no time to waste. What
could have taken you five years to do will take you One year, because
everything is much clearer now.
Deep within me I started to feel things I couldn't explain and
I discovered my gift of writing and paying attention to detail to
tackle personal problems and social issues. I needed to understand
the mystery of life and the link between the creator and man.
I was a depressed teenager, and so needed something to help me escape
that feeling. Music was my only escape, especially Hip-hop/Rap Music
made me feel I wasn?t alone in my thoughts. Rappers like Tupac, Nas
etc. I learned from these and they lyrically or poetically influenced me greatly.
Civilization and development strikes
sacred lands invaded,natives way of life compromised a government is
introduced, we are being thaught 2 follow politics and go 2 school,
cos they say da key is education but tell me do you see a door? it
what tribe u belong to or the condition you facing we are building
one nation and you going to be part of it whether you like it or not
from now on your whole existence depends on the economy stop wearing
wearing put on a suit and a tie cos thats more current and decent the
sun is too hot for this kind of out fit plus the tie keeps choking my
they wont give you a job witout it what they are actually saying is
they wont give you a job till you choke yourself Oh Lord what is i gon
do? i know you see the hardship the blackman is going through but is
okay cos someday is all goin to be over and i hope that someday comes
Its time we talk about unity
Its time we talk about divinity
its time we analyse the creators vision for you and me its time we go back
into time and critize this division that seperate you and me lets explore
the definition that differentiate you from me man i think is time we
become more aware
its time we realize forces daily attack our spiritual beings forces thats
been against us since the beginning of time and they ve been winning i
mean take a look the times does it look like time is on our side sometimes
i think time is the enemy cos we just dont have enough time
i got a watch for a present the other day and i felt like thats all the
time i ever needed then it got stolen, i couldnt believe it time was taking
away from me and it was that easy
my dad died, followed by auntie then my uncle died but he was only above
fifty i cudnt understand why was that all the time he had to be alive
i know of a few people who didnt live beyond 25 but they still had enough
time to achieved their dreams i know of kids who didnt live to see sixteen
so how do we explain life to this child in her sick bed right before her
i think what we dont relize is how precious life is and how life is
measured by time. and the length of time is all about your calculation how
long you have all depends on your diet your talent, relationships and your
occupation your doubts, believes, origin and your destination
i know of people who achieve in 5 years what others could not in 20 years
man thats time well spent
how do u measure your time? is it in hours, minutes and seconds? days,
weeks, months, years? some people measure it by money, fame, joy n tears
well either way the choice is theirs
to me time its about living a life that will last for decades, centuries
making history, leaving behind a legacy being remembered by future
generations to come.
I think its about time we stop wasting time.
its time we stop fantasizing and become its time to redefine time and
become one with destiny. yes, I believe this is the time.
