Mama, Be Not Afraid

From a dirt road I come from, storm from the past
Dust twirls in cyclone curls and lays me on the grass
As steady as a heart beat, and as fleeting as a wave
I break crest on newborn shores from everlasting graves

I walk the seems of night and day amidst tears of all unknown
Please turn and face night fall because in the darkness light is shown

Oh mama, be not afraid

Sticky hands and crooked hearts have scattered all your things
And read you lines from wicked poems that empty searching brings
With my hands I’ll feed you bread and they’ll complain its just toast
And search the trees for spirits and then claim they saw a ghost

Well they’ll try and sell you happiness and then sell it to you for a fee
I can sell you everything, I’ll just sell it to you free

Oh mama, be not afraid

When poets breathe indifference
When a singer loses breath
When politicians rid their land and retire for the rest
When eyes of heads of relevance cast their shadows on your hands
And draw their inspiration off the backs of younger men

Yea I can tell you something from the grey we must choose
And if you don’t learn how to give your life there’s no life for you to lose

Oh mama, be not afraid
Oh mama, be not afraid
