To The Spirits Within Me
Still I Arise
Boy, when you are down, are you really down? When you want to do something to bring youself up, why not? We live under so many laws, restrictions, rules and rights; that we often forget about human rights.
I know you are there. I know you cause me to do what I do and to be like I am, while without I would not have the courage nor wisdom. If it wasn’t for you what kind of spirit would I have? Would I want to kill people or beat the other guy? Are you the spirit of Jesus Christ or are you the spirit of the African Plains, American Indians, Slaves, Brits, Germans, Jews, Muslims…? All these spirits and more help to make-up Art Thomas.
Keep me safe. Guide me through the dangerous obstacles of life- lying, cheating, killing and stealing, for I know how this land was conquered. Help me to be stronger, wiser and resist these temptations.
I am one way at work and another at home, there have been very few times I have had the opportunity to work with honorable people, people who are actually truthful to themselves and in the business of helping others. If most weren’t getting paid, they would not do it. Their excuse would be they cannot afford to. I know I am different and that difference is because of you. Help me to see the dangerous toils and snares before it’s too late. Give me strength and courage to be able to make a prosperous living, while encouraging others to do the same. I know to have an independent country takes an independent people, doing independent thinking, all for the good of the whole.
I know it will take a very traumatic experience to turn all of what we’ve done around and I want to be a part of that traumatic experience, in order to help others better survive. Being that our economy has come to this end, knowing that if we do not change, it can only get worse. That worse, I have before seen and experienced and I do not wish that upon my worse enemy.
Help me to reach like-minded individuals and work with them to bring our country out of this economy crisis. Help me to work with all people that they may have a better quality of life, because that is the way I think and what I desire - a community in which everyone can fully participate. The good neighbor, that all things in moderation can be good.
About the spirits in you, are you able to obey your true calling? Do you even know it? Are you too important or are they too menial? Can you afford not too?

Still I Rise
You may write me down in history
Does my sassiness upset you?
Just like moons and like suns,
Did you want to see me broken?
Does my haughtiness offend you?
You may shoot me with your words,
Does my sexiness upset you?
Out of the huts of history's shame
