Long after my loud, passionate voice had stopped echoing
Long after I had mouthed the words of extraordinary meaning
Long after my rhymes have ceased reasoning
They’ve already created a ripple, for posterity to be moved even for just a bit.
Long after I had vandalized public property with my art
Long after the paints and colors have faded and cracked
Long after I had been handcuffed for expressing myself through this act
The silent majority had already found their own niche on the map and made their own mark.
Long after I had given all that I could give
Long after I had dedicated my whole life to helping
Long after I had been misunderstood that I expected favors in exchange, to be returning
In the end I know the truth will eventually set their narrow minds free.
Long after I had questioned what authority claim to be the facts
Long after I had answered that I am merely exercising my right to speak up
Long after I had been accused of everything except only being a human
At the end of the day God knows me more than any one of them the real shams.
Long after my dreams have been reached and I had made it
Long after I had embraced with open arms my destiny
Long after I had been brought to many places by my lustful wandering
Nothing beats looking back at where I came from, and recalling the joys and pains while in the middle of the journey.
Long after I had loved with all of my soul and heart
Long after I had been hurt and cheated on that it drove me mad
Long after I had lost faith that I would be able again to trust
I know you are out there, just waiting for me to allow you to hold my hand.
Long after I had taken my final heave of vitality
Long after the world had stopped turning around its axis
Long after the universe had stopped expanding and
no one will even remember I had lived
Somewhere in history there was once like me who had done her part to the fullest of her being.
