This time may your legs be exacerbated by love and your courage allow you to steal my show.
Rise up my wounded warriors lift your faces to the sky
He is so proud of you and so happy that you did not die
You need to tell your story , tell it fast tell it slow so all the
Little ones behind you will actually know
war……… is………. not ………..the ……..answer
Rise up my broken babies with blood streaming twixt pure lips
your heart is hard with iron and have the girth of hips
that gave birth to baby lions who would defend you till their death
Rise up my beautiful princesses , you now can rest.
Rise up my witty banter rise up with a twinkle in your eye
Make them laugh Make them laugh make them laugh make them laugh
So they never never hear you cry
Rise up my beautiful babies put your faces all to the sky
Raise your hands in the air raise them up so so very high
Let them know we will be heard
Let them know its , ummm its not OK
Let them know you have the answer
Well, have the question anyway.
Why is it OK if you are not my color race creed or taste,
Why is it OK for me to hate
Rise up my wise women you have held your tongues
far too long it is time now for us… to tell the babies
when they are stepping wrong,
tell them, learn from my mistake you crazy little bitch
Learn from the mistakes of me, your wise witch
Learn from the mistakes that I made when I was walking your path.
Learn from the mistakes. the joys. the tribulations,
Learn from my past.
Its OK to make mistakes I encourage you to do so,
Because without them you will inevitably….. fail
But through those mistakes
have the wisdom, have the courage , have the courage
to say ….we hail.
We hail you wise women,
We will follow in your path.
We will not allow injustice and ridiculous discourse to last.
We will not talk about the flim nor the flam.
We will not, no not close our eyes.
We will wear the monicker they give us be it
christian atheist feminist or wise
finally rise up my brothers
because you know it is time
you have had your walk in the sunshine
now reach behind you so we can climb not over your back but side by side
lets make this mountain strong
rise up my beautiful brothers it is time to sing our song.
