Welcome / new horizons / where the mind is
More than just land and sky / I’m intertwining
Planets / spinning alignment / with assignments
Slightly / pivoted to the Sun’s divineness
Unseen but felt like air
Everything is extravagant done with flair
From the way that we walk / we glide we there
Textures of the hair and clothes we wear
Lyrics by Chaka Mkali, “Grand Rising,” from the album Rituals of Resilience
