What if he never stood

On the balcony or what if

He never rode in the car

If he never watched that movie

If she didn’t march us this far?

Revolution through fate

That’s what I see, if that’s the case

What’ll happen to me, will I

Ascend to be a king like the great Selassie

Or will I turn coward like Malcolm X’s rising

What if I never wrote or sang a song

If I never graduated and continued on

No education or religion to guide

What if I was nothing, empty inside.
