Poem: Find Your Way Back by Sophia Lenore

Month after month God’s original people depart from the Motherland towards the Western world with hopes for a better life.

Yet do they find their way back?

Or wrestle with internal strife?

To exit the cradle of life means you will die a slow cultural death.

But Beyonce said her Daddy used to tell her “Look up at the stars” it’s been a long time but remember who you are.

So we just gotta find our way back.

It’s a big, big world so don’t stray too far – just find your way back.

Alkebulan’s find your way back.

Find your way back…
