I wanted to share something with you:
I Have A Dream, by Common
In search of brighter days, I ride through the maze of the madness,
Struggle is my address, where pain and crack lives,
Gunshots comin’ from sounds of Blackness,
Given this game with no time to practice,
Born on the Black list, told I’m below average,
A life with no cabbage,
That’s no money if you from where I’m from,
Funny, I just want some of your sun
Dark clouds seem to follow me,
Alcohol that my pops swallowed bottled me,
No apology, I walk with a boulder on my shoulder,
It’s a Cold War – I’m a colder soldier,
Hold the same fight that made Martin Luther the King…
Dark clouds seem to follow me…I just want some of your sun… I mean, wow.
Frankly, I found that pretty poetic.
Plus it’s got stuff about Jewish people in there. Double points for relevance for me!!

The half a point is for saying “Khan” correctly, BTW.
P.S. We’ve gotten a few responses about listeners “being behind” on listening to the podcast. Just wanted to remind you, this isn’t One Life to Live or something, there’s no real order… you can listen to whatever episode you like whenever you like! We’re always thankful for your support. 🙂
