Inside this cocoon
lies a caterpillar
hiden so deep in the forest
away from transgression,ignorance and lies
inside this cocoon
lies a caterpillar
as smart as can be
knowing what one wants to be
a caterpillar of knowledge
self determination and equality
one of class and curiousity'
this great caterpillar
transform in this cocoon
and emerges a Black Butterfly
one who has to fight against the world for rights
rights for survival, rights to live a life,
rights to be above them all
a great creature both great and small
seeing foes and fates of the days that lies ahead
seeing truth and grace running down the lonely highway
a black butterfly created and made
regards of what lies beyond the walls of hate
this black butterfly will always know it's fate.

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become reality.

Yes sistah, To quote di I SELF!
As long as this black butterfly :

" DOES NOT GO WHERE THE PATH MAY LEAD,
 BUT GOES INSTEAD WHERE THERE IS NO PATH
 AND LEAVE A TRAIL. "


THEN THIS BLACK BUTTERFLY WILL KNOW THE WAYS OF RASTA, and leave a trail for the few who are chosen SEEN ?
So break loose, and make use of this beautiful COCOONED state of BLACKNESS:
For you WERE!
You ARE!
And your ARE TO COME!
The road is rocky, but the I is NOT ALONE.
JAH GUIDE !!
