Motives & Thoughts

"Lie to your neighbors so you get ahead:
Modern day trickery is all you've been fed.
Motives and thoughts.
Check your motives and thoughts."

Strip every single thing away - every history book and Black Arts Movement poem and DAISY rap song and Morrison novel and tightly curled strand of hair when the perm used to be and issue of Essence and even my mother's tongue - and Lauryn Hill would be left. Hers is the voice that did it, that changed me.
