I am light as a feather and free as forever

 I am light as a feather and free as forever

I am the thread that holds you to the ground. 

Grounded in reasoning but high as I want to be, high as I need to see.

See,

it’s above me now 

And we not backing down 

Our glow too bright for you 

and there’s absolutely nothing we can do 

For you, you see our lights too true

Solar connect too strong and our family lineage too long 

The way yall move, upside down

 shits too wrong 

I worry bout yall but long for my talls 

My victory 

my loves

 my copper colored kin

Hair shaped like DNA so all we do is win

 I am light as a feather and free as forever

I am the thread that holds you to the ground. 

Grounded in reasoning but high as I want to be, high as I need to see.

See,

it’s above me now
