This past election has proven to be a big disgrace
Records have surfaced showing WE let this blow up in our face
The good folk of this nation never thought this would ever be,
So, now we must grapple with the sad situation... And we'll have to see!
Frankly, WE have no excuse! No excuse to not exercise our inalienable right
Though disillusionment may yet abound
We already know voting is a mandatory right
So use of it can change the tides as well as possibly astound
We have no excuse! Our unused right is a slap in the face to MLK
Sojourner and others
It’s a disgrace to the lost lives
Of our dead sistahs – also our dead dedicated brothers
We have absolutely NO, no excuse! Staying home from the polls
Is the act of people squandering their future
Like spreading crumbs to the birds
Giving up that hard earned right is unconceivable...
An act for which even I can not find words
We have NO excuse! We cannot have the nerve nor audacity to stall...
Nor sit this one out
We can not give up this opportunity to
Show this Nation what we’re all about
WE have no excuse! We have NO excuse! Never squander our rights!
The haters, the naysayers, they are all trying to keep us down
We are aware of their sneaky tricks and tactics
They should not win any such battle with US without a fight!
WE HAVE NO EXCUSE!
And because I know WE are strong when United:
I have the audacity to believe...We can stand for freedom
I have the audacity to believe...We can represent freedom
I have the audacity to believe...We can become the epitome of freedom
For our freedom depends solely on us!!!
Even though, we all know freedom ain't free!
We must all BELIEVE in the notion of freedom for All!
And when we put emotion into this notion…
I have the audacity to believe in us!!!!
I have the audacity to believe…
That you too, have the audacity to believe in us! Yeah!! WE GOT THIS!
