I Wanna Be Revolutionary

I Wanna Be Revolutionary Like

Like Angela Davis

With her afro

Telling a nation to

Use it’s brain

Like Malcolm spitting

Words of knowledge that

Makes you take down the

Thoughts of sprayed bullets

Like him using the content of

His character to move

An entire generation

I want to be REVOLUTIONARY

Like Martin using peace

Instead of war

I wanna be revolutionary

Using my words and my

Gifts to empower, inspire,

And pull up the nasty ugly

Roots of life that people often pass

On by

I wanna be REVOLUTIONARY

Breaking down ethnic walls

With powerful actions

Revolting from the society

Sad life’s melodies

I want to be REVOLUTIONARY

Like the black panthers did back in the

Day, not tryna make others sad

But trying to impact the community.

Educating our children and more.

Instead of sitting back and complaining

About what AIN’t HAPPENINg

Cause anywhere we’s be is

Happening

I want to use my words for love

I want to use them to delete someone’s pain

I want them to make Congress think

About changing some of these laws.

I want to be able to free a generation of hate, shame,

And stop abandoning our communities that are in need.

I want to use my body, march around the country,

Wake up folks

Cause we need a damn wake up call

Right now.

I want to be REVOLUTIONARY

Do you even hear me.

Turn off the radio

Turn off the damn Tv

Get a clue

If we don’t do a thing

We have no one to yell at

We need to scream in the mirror

At ourselves, remind ourselves, that

We are responsible for

Resolving some of these social

Issues.

Are you ready for the revolution

Or are you�going to continue

To sleep

Forever waiting for someone to

Clean up the mess we’ve all made?
