Contemplation on the Odu Ogunda Meji

We are not born alone
We can not stand alone
We will not survive alone
and yet we stand in solitude
unwilling to give up
the very thing that destroys us
because of the belief that it is a means of salvation
We do not own the gun
the gun owns us
keeping us in a state of fear
desperately trying to control
the inevitable moment of our death
when in reality
it comes to us all
the unenlightened mind
will always cling to the belief
that there is something to control
we are born in tribes
we stand together
we survive shoulder to shoulder
a community united
without guns
will last an eternity
