Parable of Joseph

Parable of Joseph the slave becoming a king
Who heard songs that our ancestors use to sing
The answered prayer of the oppressed
For us to shine from the west
Rejected stone becoming best
We where there from the first day but they frowned and turned away
thinking we where unworthy of its light
they tried to claim they were white so they couldn’t share our plight
but the truth came to us like a thief in the night
went threw hell to guide us right
blind and deaf it gave us sight
lost alone no one would help us fight
who came for us
no our path is dangerous
our leaders now lost in dust
having to hold my flag and never give up
fatherless sons had to have direction
older man takes under his wing teaching him lessons
broken men holding on to manhood in prison sessions
little know being build for gods selection
a curse  that became a blessing
