They sing me songs today
The ancestors sway in the wind
I pretend they let my wings open wide
Sometimes a spirit must hide
Everybody don’t need to see she flies
Her journey be deep inside of me
They sing me songs today
The ancestors tell me
Sit in your own womb, child
Listen for the message
Breath of life is a flight that soars high
While your sitting in your own womb
Consumed by the world spinning fast
The task is to master your own purpose
Stand still long enough for movement
Surface travels lie in passage directions
Often confused state of mind be madness
Self-reflections are often cloudy mirror images
Nobody wants to look at themselves
See me for what I am
Not what I can be
Not what I should have done
Sitting in my own womb
They sing me songs today
The ancestors take flight
Blue birds they are
Far in tree limbs
Transcending melodic imagery
They transform me
Take me Black to spiritual realms
Nurture me
I need quenching
I am dying of thirst
Cursed to live among those
Who don’t know they’re alive
Please find me sitting in my own womb
Spirit
I hear life breathing
Yearning
I am to be free
Sometimes the dark is a lighted path
Masking all from within
If I intend to feed
Off the need to cut the umbilical cord
No longer will I soar
Past the heaven’s gates
Takes two weeks to develop tear ducts
Lifetime of tears
Some happy thoughts
Mostly scar tissue from pain
Left behing
Outside of sitting in your own womb
They sing me songs today
The ancestors
They say I am
Strong enough to sit and listen
They say I am
Strong enough to stand and wait
They say I am
Strong enough to be cleansed from my crying
I hear the ancestors
I pretend to let my wings open wide
Everybody don't need to see she flies
Sometimes spirit must hide her journey
They sing to me
The ancestors
While I am sitting in my own womb
Silent and still
I am listening to their song.....

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
Change the world for the better, take care of it, because you live in it!
