The Road Less Traveled

The Road Less Traveled

The road less traveled

The road less traveled is the path that I’m on
For It separates the boys from the men
One step at a time
Courage in hand
Some taking this journey without a map, without a plan
Yet, paving the way, standing in the gap
Sacrificing their lives for the common good
But dared not spear to do the best they could

Men like Paul Bogle, owner of houses, cattle and land
Saw the plight of the common man
So he decided to take a stand
He lead the rebellion in Morant Bay
The road was rocky, hell to pay
And the rest is history as they say
But his brave efforts paved the way for a brand new day

Leonard Howell, the principle key
Gave birth to the movement
Recognizing the significance of the teachings of our majesty
The emperor Haile Selassie
He taught us to live in love and unity
The pinnacle way
Babylon saw him as a threat to their thrown
So they pillage, murder and burnt down his home

Marcus Gravey, the black star liner, traveled across the sea
To find his people ignorant, living in poverty
While the system practiced racism to the highest degree
So he rose to the occasion
Using his words as a weapon
To set the people free
Showing the massive that they had the power to be all that they could be

Robert Nesta Marley, The prophet, The Gong came along to free the people with music
Using the words of our majesty The Emperor Haile Selassie to remind us that until the philosophy which hold one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned…

Everywhere is war.

That until they’re no longer 1st class and 2nd class citizens of any nation…Until the color of a man’s skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes,

Me say war.

That until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race

Me say war, war! Rumors of war!

It’s time to take a look around, open up our eyes and look within
And ask ourselves are we really satisfied with the life we’re living?
