I'll not tell you it will be a easy task
For this you will have to take off the mask
Jump in with both feet without fear of crash
For I seek to elevate you above the trash

They say if you teach a man to fish
He'll never hunger for another dish
But I say to you move beyond that role
And own the fishing pond as a whole

For it is the man that owns the pie
Who deems whether you eat or die
For he grants the access to you
And determines what is your due

So before you say you are ready for freedom
Tell me are you ready to build an entire kingdom
Or are you content fishing in someone else’s lake
Pretending that you like your little slice of cake

I am ready to build thy kingdom
in hope for my long due freedom
the lake or pond i will own
to bring all my people home
that piece of cake not enough
for i want it whole as if it was gold
reaching out !

Truly it is not enough to teach a man to fish nowadays--but it is a start-the hardest part is finding someone willing to teach, someone not afraid of sharing what they know with their people for fear someone might pass them by--unity it such a simple concept--but so difficult to acheive especially in a "me based" culture--Amun-Ra

I know this is my first status update since 2020 begin, but all of us agree that 2020 delivered a low-blow
to each of us with the miscellaneous events we have recently seen which brought all of us great displeasure.
