The honored, we were told to dishonor.
'Libation-less' Ancestors, seek what is rightfully theirs, what we wrongfully refuse them.
Children of the Maafa, yearning across yesterdays
And above the din are Promises made,
Sill unfulfilled, because we cannot hear them
Because we cannot remember we made them.
Solemn oaths - never to betray, never to sell out, never to work against our people, never to abandon our children.
Promises never to forget The Way, never to be ashamed of beliefs beaten from us.
We remember promises. And seeing our children we see our opportunity to fulfill a promise made."
