I woke up one morning and the sun shone so bright. Peering through the window of opportunity,
higjh in the sky I see an Eagle in flight. High above the mountains os thought. It's path propelled
by hopes and dreams.

So I's get cleaned up and pack my daily gear and bounce out into the world, like that Eagle
with no fear. Hit the streets with my eyes on the prey, full of energy not lettin'g nothing get in
my way. Barries, I'll break them and opportunities I'll take them.

Now, my wings are spreadding and straight forward is the only direction I am heading.
It's illegal to shoot an Eagle but society would skip me to save a Beagle. Animals got more
rights than a brotha, now that's evil.

But all that don't matter because now, the hunters are out.

Bang!

Here comes the bullet of racism to take me down. We were promised 40 acres and
a mule but never got that. All we got was being treated like a fool and killed cause we
are Black. So everyday we still got to deal with that. But that bullet missed
and I continued to fly high in the sky.
