A prince among thieves / U leave the wicked standing in fear

They cast dark clouds / yet your message remains clear

Dedication

4 A True Leader

                              By Thomas Long

Minister Farrakhan, the words "Thank you

could never be enough

Your voice gave me strength

when I felt like giving up

 

U taught me how to be a man

and have love for self

U helped me open up my heart

to be able to love someone else

 

U taught me mathematics

as it relates to life

You're a shining example

of human sacrifice

 

A prince among thieves

U leave the wicked standing in fear

They cast dark clouds

yet your message remains clear

 

From the depths of my heart

our souls will always connect

because I've met few men in my travels

for which I have respect

 

I may not agree with all things

but of one I am sure

That your love for your people

is 100% pure
