Poetry: “Ain’t A Ceiling”

Video: Jill Scott, “Aint A Ceiling”

Deep-Verse: “You say life’s been hard on you.
Well brother I got news; it’s hard on me too.
We seem to face the same old issues.
Some are just surface, some are deep, some deep down in the tissue.
And I know slavery has played its part, word.
Being separated and subjugated and that passes to the brain of a child
So I want to step off what was, and and start with the right now
You say “the world just don’t understand”
But I ain’t the world, my love, I’m your woman.
And I know how deep it really goes…”
