My Eyes Have Seen The Light

My Eyes Have Seen The Light
By Nate Spears


My eyes have seen the light
I’ve been trick, traded, and troubled
Separated from my father, divided from my brothers

My eyes have seen the light
I’ve been drained of my mother’s love
Dehumanized before the world
Respect lost globally 
Steady dying love

My eyes have seen the light
Violence has been manufactured into key
Absence of hard work
Rendering your rights for less than free

Now my eyes are closed
My head is bowed
In my thoughts I pray for we

My eyes have seen the light
The King rests in me
Passing self respect the next
To breath
To breed
To believe
My eyes transcend the light on you.
