Stay Woke!

I stay woke is more than a song

it’s an awareness of right versus wrong

It’s a cry from the frontal lobe

after being probed... traveling the globe

Bleeding questions of hidden truth

to the foolish, what’s the use

To the teacher, trying to reach her

to the foolish, nothing occur

Stay woke my friend, no time to sleep

An indolent never sows, but tries to reap

From one generation there’s a strength

to the next, weather the length

The journey, the struggle, the climb, the unseen

wake up, heel-toe, child work that dream!
