A Voice I Am Going To Send

by Baba Olutunde Olufemi

From the deep root of my being,

in the spirit of my creator.

A voice I am going to send......

A voice I am going to send......

Through the doorway of time

opened to human experiences.

A voice I am going to send......

A voice I am going to send......

Like thunder speaking greatly

from behind the heavily thick clouds.

A voice I am going to send......

A voice I am going to send......

Like the clouds that sends its rain

and the wild bulls that shake the plain.

A voice I am going to send......

A voice I am going to send......

Like the wind that ramble the trees,

and the roar of the stormy seas.

A voice I am going to send......

A voice I am going to send......

Like the birds that renew their notes,

and through the air their music floats.

A voice I am going to send......

A voice I am going to send......

Until it has gone from pole to pole,

and has transferred from soul to soul.

A voice I am going to send......

A voice I am going to send......

in a lyrical song that will inspire lovers

in vastness to nourishes others

A voice I am going to send......

A voice I am going to send......

To be heard from the dumb to the wise

those free and those still colonized.

A voice I am going to send......

A voice I am going to send......

To break their chains to set them free

so that they will hear my Godís voice through me.

A voice I am going to send......

A voice I am going to send......
