Even if you are not ready for the day

‘Even if you are not ready for the day ‘is a line from the song praise God. The American rapper Kanye West’s tenth studio album, Donda, features the song “Praise God” (2021). 

The song “Praise God” features Baby Keem, famous rapper Travis Scott, and a quote from Kanye West’s late mother, Donda West, for whom the album is titled. The song praises God and draws attention to His cause, as the title suggests.

Even if you are not ready for the day

The poem by Gwendolyn Brooks is included in Ye’s song “Praise God.” American poet Gwendolyn wrote about the difficulties faced by the ordinary folks in her neighborhood. In 1950, she became the first African American woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for poetry.

 The message of this song is simple yet intense. Tomorrow always comes, regardless of how much you fear it, how unprepared you are, or how fast you try to escape. It is the only constant we have.

Regardless of where life takes us, time will pass us by whether or not we are prepared for it. People had varied perspectives after hearing that quote. However, they understood that what they are going through now does not affect the future.

The day will be new tomorrow, with it, a new beginning. We can decide whether to take advantage of that or allow past events to rule the rest of our lives.

Praise God – LyricsEven if you are not ready for the day

That she wrote “Speech to the Young: Speech to the Progress Toward.”

Say to them, say to the down-keepers, the sun-slappers

The self-soilers, the harmony-hushers

Even if you are not ready for the day, it cannot always be night

Serve, flex; I do work (work), six, I’m like Mike

He’s out of sight, woo, you done got me piped

Two-man like Ike, six out the spot (uh, uh)

Into the night

Yeah, I’m shaking the drop (drop)

I’m still up on top (aight)

I been had the bop (ooh-ooh)

The devil, my opp, can’t pay me to stop (It’s lit)

My God at the top (La Flame)

We gon’ praise our way out the grave, dawg

Living, speaking, praise God

Walking out the graveyard back to life

I serve, follow your worth, see with new sight, into the night (hey)

Yeah, this life I’m living (I’m living)

All the advice been tipped in (that thing)

Gave me that grip, no slipping (that grip)

Out of my mind, went tripping (my mind)

Tell me to take two when I’m on one (I’m on)

That lookout like no one kept it real tight like yo’ son (yo’ son)

Yeah (La Flame)

We gon’ praise our way out the grave, dawg

Living, speaking, praise God

Walking out the graveyard back to life (hey)

I serve, follow your worth, see with new sight, into the night (hey)

Still on sight, huh? Still outside

I just, huh, still outside, huh, still outside

Tame Imp-Tame Impala

Tame Impala, stay outside, huh

And I’m still outside, I’m still, still outside, huh

Let’s get right, huh, let’s get right, uh, let’s get right, uh, huh

Let’s get right, let’s get (ayy, ayy, ayy), let’s get right

Let’s get (ayy, ayy, ayy), let’s get- (hey)

Look at new scenes; I opened my life, I’m subject to memes

I signed a few -I polished their dreams

An angel on Earth, come under my wing

Stop running your publishers-

They publish the headlines and say the wrong things

Y’all treat your Lord and Savior like renters’ insurance

You know what I mean?

Bada the bada the boom, I bada the boom, I bada the bing

I need a new girl; my old one was mean.

I had to let go, forgave all them evils that came to my shows

I channeled them bad, all in an abode

I challenge the trust; I challenge the turbulence

I came with the life

I gathered my sinners and asked if I’m right, let’s get-

I just get right, huh

Let’s get right, let’s get right, let’s get right, shh, shh

Ain’t on sight; it’s on sight

I don’t know you, you, you, you, it’s on sight

I don’t know you, you, you, you (ayy, ayy), let’s get right

Ayy, all of my n-as on Channel 5

I don’t channel ten ’til it go time

Used to throw up my uncle’s spaghetti

Been toting totes since before I was ready

Back when my mama told me that I was challenged

A single black woman, you know that she is petty

I turned a heavy heart to two million dollars

I put that in totals, reverse out the day

I gotta; I gotta put on a rager one time

I swung the powder, went major one time

I know some white people serving no time

I gotta do it for me, do it for, pray for me

Doing it for all the ones dying

I wanna do it for all the ones crying

I wanna, uh, uh, uh, let’s get right, huh
