"THAT'S HOW STRONG"

1/16/Obama-10; (C) Prince Atumra Uhuru Mutawakkil.
Time: 7:43 INSPIRATION, song that appeared on television show "Mercy2, NBC.

1) I don't remember that first night,
When you held me so tight,
Perhaps it was still daylight!
But you whispered in my ear...
How much you loved me.
I know I musta blinked,
Because that's what newborns do.
Cuddle in your arms, as I took
In my first sight. From that day
On I never not know what
Love is. Because...

Sing: That's how strong your love is.
That's how strong your love is.
That's how strong your love is.

2) Even when I didn't act right,
And I tossed and turned all night,
You loved me more and more.
As you fought off sleep... sleep
You needed more. Because...

Sing: That's how strong your love is.
That's how strong your love is.
That's how strong your love is.

3) I don't remember what occurred,
But I do remember that instead
Of quitting school to stay home
With me or passing on to another
You decided, "I'll take him with me"
And set the stage for my baby college
Years. As I vaguely remember
Sitting in my yellow baby bike
Seat, counting colorful cars
As we rode on. Because...

Sing: That's how strong your love is.
That's how strong your love is.
That's how strong your love is.

4) I don't know how many cracks
Exist in your heart... from everytime
I broke it... by getting in trouble
And going to jail. What mother wants
To see their baby in HELL!!!
But broken hearts never stopped
You coming all this way to see me,
Letting me know unconditionally
Through interstate, rain & snow,
- You'll always be there.
Because...

Sing: That's how strong your love is.
That's how strong your love is.
That's how strong your love is.

5) Almost every baby boy prays for
The blessed riches of this world,
So he can attempt to relieve his
MA'MA of the burdens of this here life.

As I sit in this cemented tomb,
It seems as if the walls and
Ceiling are lead reinforced,
As my prayers seem to go nowhere.

As I see you strive and struggle alone
Out there, in this selfish world.
Knowing that you have no one dependable
To lean on for even a brief moment
To catch your breath;

The tiger and lion in me set'a fire,
Making me wanna shake my brother
And Zulu my niece and nephews.
But I hear your voice telling me,
- "Don't worry, I'll be fine!"
And not to waste energy on
People who are not shit, even
Though they are family.
Because...

Sing: That's how strong your love is.
That's how strong your love is.
And that's how strong your love is.
That's how strong your love is.

6) Though I find comfort in my faith
And my faith in you. I'm tired of
Living a Greek and Roman mythology.
Fake ass people claiming Pro Nubian
Qualities and ideologies.

But when you ask assistance,
They sick like they dying of allergies.
Doctor notes
As false as them.

Can't count on them nor the things
They say. Lying to them is a
Normal part of the day. Promises
They spit in the wind, and as always
-They dry up and never exist.
No need to cry, you never had their
Love, so it's not that hard to miss.
But your love I never missed
Because...

Sing: That's how strong your love is.
That's how strong your love is.
