Set My People Free (One)

Dedicated to Shakespear 1

"I am in a battle to save my life 
as I kneel before the Father and my Brother 
and Savior Jesus The Christ. 
As the angels stand about I find my self just crying out. 
Lord When? When will it be our day? 
When will we be treated as equals, as human beings instead of things? 
Lord when? then I hear this loud scream, 
and I wake up to this nightmare
Daily I stand in prayer, reaching out to help save 
the life of my child and other children. 
And so many others that the system has locked behind bars 
and threw away the key. 
I know the Lord hears me without a double. 
But it would great if I could get other love ones 
and parents to help me carry this humongous assignment out.

I realize a job is needed to make ends. 
But where does it start and when does it end. 
Bread must be placed on the table this is true. 
But at the price of a lives? 
Is this the only way they can keep their jobs or build up rank? 
How far is the human society willing to sink, before they realize the truth? 
How far will the human race go? To look good, to claim power, 
will they continue unto the hour?

So many rules of this battle I am finding unfamiliar...
it truly pays to stay in school, 
itís bad to be an educated fool. 
Learning never stops until we drop for sure I've learned. 
Yet a PhD I've yet to earn.

The more I grow, the more I know that my PhD will be in Criminology. 
As I work to make my people free. 
It would be nice to have a few of my peers working along with me, 
for my child, their children, their husbands and their wives, 
if for nothing else to save their lives.
As I kneel in prayer, rise up and move forward 
I clearly hear the voices and spirits of other mothers, 
and other fathers, husbands and wives. 
Praying to the Heavenly Father to save their off springs lives.
When they locked up my son they killed me. Did I deserve to die? 
Did those mothers that I hear crying deserve to die? 
Did they commit unforgivable crimes? 
Are we all so blind, behind the times?
