HERSTORY

lyrics

To me it's such a mystery..Strong, smart women throughout history yet their gifts we don't really see. HIS STORY is focused on HIS GLORY .. I think it's now mandatory we start taking inventory ..tell the whole truth, yeah the whole story... Women rule the world, that’s Girl Power! Fists up in the air, it’s our finest hour. Long, slow trudge trying to make it up this tower. We’re rescuing ourselves, female Jack Bauer. Through oceans in time, the journey, super potent in these rhymes. The female rise from decline. Went from royal bloodlines, to second class citizens. Making less dividends than men because of preference. Run that back?? They tried to deny our validity. We passed that. Success story, like a female MC running rap. Imagine that.. Charging toward the peak, we could never plat-eau. Rise and grind’s the motto. Flying high on auto. It took a hard fight to win our voter rights. We realized our strength. Game over good night... The dream stayed in sight. For each small child, with big dreams. Focused on the sky because the world is not what it seems. 236 years, we are finally doing our thing.... Possibility guides us, yeah, we found our wings. Call me Condi Rice with my diction. Minus all the fiction. We’re holding high court. Modern inquisition. Standing on the shoulders of giants. Preaching self reliance. Sometimes you can only break free by being defiant. Yelling through the silence. I’m the Sojourner of Truth, we must learn and empower. Then pass it to the youth. Each day’s a new milestone. Hold the phone like a dial tone. We’ve been over here stretching. Now it’s time for the sprint home. Shipped from Noah’s Arc, skip to Joan of Arc. A woman against an army, she provided the spark. Shining Light on the rift of two world’s set apart. We’re taught to focus more on Tutankhamen but our roots were not uncommon. Cleopatra. Skin of almond. Strength of steel. Queen of all men. Don’t forget, Mary Magdalene walked beside Christ. Washed him, prepared his grave. Love and sacrifice. Thinking they could ever hold us down, think twice. Progress is paid in full, sisters passed paid the price. Decades from Susan B. Anthony. Our youth will see the first woman Presidency. We’ve infiltrated government. Affected policy. Soon this land will really be “the land of the free”. Rosa Parks was thrown in jail over a seat. Now we’re seated in the boys club, kicking up our feet. Michelle Obama’s known for giving a killer speech, but we won’t raise the bar until we practice what we preach.
