the struggle goes on to set my people free

Dekoder and Kids Records 4th recording from M.F. Burrowes


Rastafari Speaks
Definitions of songs inside my CD


This song expresses integrity. There are so many people in this world who are brain wash. They would rather equate themselves with Europe than –Africa although they are black people. They leave one to wonder. Can a leopard change his spots? Africans all over the world are categorized in the same manner. A caterpillar born in a pigpen is still a caterpillar. What makes me proud, as African. Is the civilization that belongs to Africans, We are till the first founders of churches and our continent has the most resources. My inspiration comes from Africa. That makes me proud. Isaiah 43 verse 3 For I am the Lord thy God. The Holy one of Israel .thy Savior .I gave Egypt for thy ransom. Ethiopia and Sheba for thee.


I am calling on the pretenders and pagans who work at radio stations and who like to be bribed to play my songs that can be an inspiration to themselves and their families. They are in a position to help to elevate and inform the general public. Like children, the public is open to lean and understand my lyrics. Even politicians can be inspired by my message of love and peace. I am protected and restricted through the power of His Imperial Majesty. Emperor Haile Selassie I. Ezekiel 5 verse 14 Moreover I will make thee waste. And a reproach among the nations that are round about thee in the sight of all that pass by.


Growing up as a youth I did not know that I was poor, I Listened carefully and watched my elders as they worked hard to better themselves. I had money and went to school barefooted and performed numerous chores daily. Now I sometimes experience some indirect questions as to why one man would like to get rich. My work is Rastafari. Work to the highest standard if I did not have that background. I wonder what would have become of me today. Maybe if I had grown up in a privileged environment I would. Like some of today’s youths headed in the wrong direction without the basic knowledge of how to survive. I would be caught in life’s many traps.  Like the man and women who live life based on artificial needs. Not being able to think for themselves. They instead rely on others to tell them what to say and do. No one works harder than a person who has determination. Joel 2 verse 28 And it shall come to pass afterword. That I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh. Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy. Your old men shall dreams. Your young man shall see vision.


What does life really mean to us? Look at Abner Louima. Amado Diallo. And Patrick Dorismond? Many like them have suffered just for been black and being in the wrong at the wrong time. People are being gunned down because of the color their skin. This cannot be fair. Where is the justice? I have determined that no one is better than me. My mother has a saying everyone has his or her own rope around his neck to hang themselves’ the world will see its fulfillment earlier than expected. A person who has great confidence cannot be jealous. Proverbs 16 verse 2 All the ways of man are clean in his own eyes but the Lord weigheth the spirit.


I recognize Prophets. To name Frederick Douglas {1803- 1880} Marcus Moziah Garvey {1887-1940} Kwame Toure {1941-1998}  Kwame Osagyero Nkrumah {19 09 – 1972} Medgar Wiley Evers { 1925 -1963} Malcolm X {19 29 – 1968} Dr Martin Luther King {1929-1968} Dr. Walter Rodney {1942- 1980}Maurice Rupert Bishop 1944-1983} Patrice Lumumba {1925- 1961} Bob Marley {1945- 1981} Peter Tosh {1944- 1997} Sabora Machel {1933-1986} Thomas Isidra Noel Sankara{1949-1987} Stephen Biko 1946- 1977} Murtala Mohammed {1938 – 1976} Sometimes I truly think we are our only allies . Because those men were infused with the spirit of Jah, who spoke through them for the rights of our people. Joel 3 verse 3 16: The Lord shall roar out of Zion .and utter his voice from Jerusalem, and the heavens and the earth shall shake.  But the Lord will be the hope of his people .and the strength of the children of Israel.


I often think about our Africa history and how great we and still are. I wonder what will become of us if we don’t unite and pool our ideas Have we lose what is intrinsic in us – our creativity? We need to support each   other and not give up one another. We have a solid black bone on which we can build. Jail  . . .  Aids . . .Tuberculosis . . .   Drugs . . . And other ills of society lay claim to us Jail- my People – controls our freedom; drugs alter our minds Set yourself free. A person who talks without doing anything positive is self destructive.1 John 4 verse 18; There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear. Because fear hear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.


In the music business   today’s. One can lose one’s dignity. Some fantasize about overnight success – this leads to their destruction. I don’t believe in relying on friends for my successes. In the kingdom of Jah. there are no friends. If one lives respectfully in his community anyone can call upon him. and he on them. Therefore, There will be no need to seek a friend before you need one and you will not be bypassed because you are not someone’s friend ‘ friends can also be a block to our spirituality because of their great burden. I used to think that some singers and players of instrument were saints. But from my personal experience. among us there is so much black mail and mind and inconsideration towards other people’s hospitality. {Pharaoh’s} Probers 29 verse 2 When the righteous are in authority. The people rejoice. but when the wicked beaeth rule . the people mourn.


I Rastafarian. Born in this western hemisphere. Acknowledge Emperor Haile Selassie I as the first true king with the title King of King’s and Lord of Lord’s as prophesied even before the time of Yesus Christos. On 11/2 /1930. Because of his worthiness, He was crowned King of King’s and Lord of Lord’s by seventy – two different nations, Pagans claimed Jah had died. But all power is up to Jah. Believe me Jah lives with me Pagans said they went to Ethiopia and asked Jah if he is God They have eyes and see not .Revelation 17 verse 14 Those shall make war with the  lamb and the Lamb shall overcome them,  for he the King of King’s  and Lord of Lords  and they that are with him are called. And chosen . and faithful.


Growing up as a young Rastafarian youth was the biggest test of my life. The people in my community made my life their business. Police brutality against Rastafarians was overwhelming. We were not classified as decent citizens and were oftentimes accused of wrongdoing .I trimmed my locks three times because of family fear and Babylon system. In the eyes of society. I may not be considered educated. but I am not a damn fool!  I have made thousands of people happy within themselves. through my music. I John 5 verse 18 we know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself. And the wicked teacheth him not.


I am challenging the world for humanity; I am taking back the mind of my people. Through my faith in Yesus Christos who teaches humanity among people.  When I declare such statements. I am basing them on history. I should not be considered a racist. I was redeemed to anoint my people.  . .your people . . . for no one ever came forward and said “I lived two Thousand years.” It does not matter how much wrong people do. They will all be victims. Not even the dog that pisseth on the walls of Babylon shall escape. Hebrews 12 verse 15 looking diligently lest any thereby many be defiles             .   .     . .


It is such a wonderful thing to know that women have played a very important role in our lives. It is known fact women are our first teachers.  Even so.  it takes a man and a woman to bear a child. So my advice to women and men. please stop the blackmail among our brothers and sisters in our relationships. Do from the heart. Remember. he who takes a woman to Zion shall wear a double crown. Proverbs 17 verse 27: He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit.


I write and sing my songs for the benefit of all people. To my surprise, I found out that there are some dead soul Rastafarians who have bootlegged and sold my C Ds without my “Definition of Songs” .Tell me. are these people working far the kingdom of the Almighty?
Rastafarians are supposed to be people of great substance. To whom all look up to for guidance. We are the chosen and should not be immoral. What about the youth? Are you going to pluck education out of their hands for a few dollars? As selfish and guilty as you are, can you look in the eyes of all people? I want to be remembered for my good works. Proverbs 14 verse 2: He that walketh in his uprightness feareth the Lord: but he that is perverse in his ways despiseth him.


As a child. I grew up hearing Dennis Brown’s beautiful voice. I only met him once. He was considered an angel by everyone but. Along the way, he lost touch with his spiritual self. There were too much invaders of his private life. I cannot say he was not a rastaman .he has some works to prove it. But being separated from family objective and being pushed into the limelight at an early age can be devastating for anyone. Job 5 verses 3 & 4: I have seen the foolish taken root. But suddenly I curse habitation/His children are for from safety, and they are crushed in the gate. Neither is there any to deliver them.


Life is getting herder each year. Now not many people saw this coming.
They thought life was going to be easy. So some abandoned their family because of wrong judgment, Now it is too late. Children seek answers as they grow up. In life today, There are more questions than answers. But it is never too late. my friends Wisdom comes with old age. If you are growing older and not becoming wiser than you were yesterday. Then. You are a fool. A person who gives up too easy on life should watch “Feed The People “on Sundays at 9:00 am on Word TV. Channel (. New York. Psalm 69 verse 33& 34: For the lord heareth the poor. And despiseth not his prisoners: ? Let the heaven and earth praise him. The seas. And everything that moveth therein.


I Jah –Fearing man know that Rastafarians have been with Jah from the begging of time even before Europeans arrive on the continent of Africa. After the coronation of His imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia who was given the name Ras Tafri. I and I obtained the right as our birthright and his faithful servants. Isaiah 43 verses 6& 7: I will say to the north. Give up: and to the south. Keep not back: bring my sons from far and my daughter from the ends of the earth:/Even every one that is called by my name: for I have formed him: yea I have made him,
Haile Selassie I Jah Rastafari.  The most Magnificent power of creation today Emperor Haile Selassie I.  The God of All ages Past. Three years ago I had a vision that he was standing tall at his table and all nations gathered around with great joy to greet him, I see that vision being fulfilled when more people of my faith.
1 John 1 verse 1&2
That whish was form the beginning. Which we have heard, Which we have seen with our own eyes. Which we have looked upon, our hands have handled; Of the word of life:? For the life was manifested. and we have seen it. And bear witness and shew unto you that eternal life. Which with the father, and was manifested unto us ….}


Again it is such a Great Blessing
That my   seven children and I are able to present to the world my third C D.
The Struggle Goes On To Set My people Free I declare to the world that His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I is God Almighty. I stand from and will not take bribes from barons – the money man. I will die for this loving faith- Selah Millard F. Burrowes .
