Reach Back

by 144Play

As my brother above me reaches back 
To uplift me
I reach
Clasping his wrist 
Clinging to my brother
As we continue to scale
What seems to be the impossible
While others tug at my ankles
They claw and grasp for fear they will be left behind
Out of jealousy 
Not wanting me to succeed
Once again holding me back
Tell me brother why is this so?
Our society beckons us to rise up
To claim back our rightful place
Hand picked to rule over this nation
We are the Alpha & Omega
Derived from the land of kings
Letís right this injustice
So when your brother reaches back
Take hold and climb
Or your weight will pull him down
For he can not carry you by himself
Reach up
My brothers
Knowledge is the key
