I Will Rise

Written by: Adesitimi Taiwo Damilola

"I will rise"

I will rise, "boldly I 
say",
You that study my 
stars and say,
-it will but dim
Let me wake from my 
dream
Like Joseph, soon I'll 
rule
don't take me for fool
I'll rise and see my 
glory even if I've no 
eyes
Like Barthlomew I will 
see with surprise
Don't be afraid of 
selling me to the 
Ishmeelites
Do it, because its just a 
lift to my heights
I will rise, even if 
potiphar's wife comes 
my way
I know she is a hole on 
my way
She knows I'm at the 
corner to my throne
"I'll rise", to you is just 
a mere tone
My brothers, to me, this 
is not a sorrow
Because you will bow 
for me tomorrow.
Adesitimi Taiwo.
