Have you ever seen eyes closed
Masks you've seen through must be changed
Have you ever heard spoken breathes
Old men's words
Have you ever heard the wind blow
Women's native tongue flow
Have you ever worn soul clothes
Eaten soul food, good for thoughts
Have you ever followed lines,
Ever read history rock inscribes
Have you ever touched Mother earth
Sown seeds, soul feeds,
Soul food, ebony wood
Open minded window
Let the wind blow.
