We've opened doors
across light years
of one hundred and four
pinpoints of enlightenment
seven hundred and twenty
evolutions of galactical circumvent
the eight without debate
the Egyptian thirteen
encrypted and encoded
in between
for yours and mine
sole purpose is to
elevate the mind
in the heart
of all thoughts
the brightness within
were keys to codes
of sirius' path
to survival, it gave us hope

The Dogon told stories
of reptilian invasions
amongst us
dismantling sound waves
to Akhenatons brightest lights
Black, Black and white
sunrays, sometimes rise
sometimes not
inclined Nefertiti's ear
to Ra-stafari

We were not heathens
who stood by the Lion's Gate
perfidious with hate
hatred became LOVE's nest
peace emanated from
our dreadlocks
locked in LOVE
we became the best
of who we are
giving thanks to the ALL and MIGHTY
the mother goddess
and the heavenly father
of time, RA's brightest
lights of which no
one found time to LOVE!
we ran away
and went to the hills above
the trees, the little turtle doves
and all the different
colours that nature brings
became our friends
for life, for LOVE
we didn't care about
war of strife
hatred or jealousy
wasn't harmonious
with our livity
within the ONE
RA-stafari community
natural halls, pitfalls
of ONE-drumbeat
ONE-heartbeat
ONE-bloodbeat
and around the fiyah key
we lit the circle throne
with ites, green and gold
colour blues left us alone
in the red zone
we travelled by
the twinkling of fireflies

into one hundred four
pinpoints of insights
eight without debate
by thirteen Egyptian
Ethiopic Judah tribes
of overstanding
decoded to enlight
Perched on the earth's
axis, we spun in delights
of gold, emerald and
ruby, red, red
ruby nights
where the sun left
for the morning
as we watch from
seven hundred-twenty
degrees of spinning
oneness, and
we silently agreed
Emperor Haile Selassie
negust negast
Rastafari was light
rays, he was light rays
light rays, Rastafari
was our light rays
and darkness never stayed
