Jul 2020
trail of tears
paralyzing fears
ripped from the mother's womb
land destined to be taken to the tomb,
colonizers,
****** hands
take take take
stolen land
transgenerational trauma,
passed down,
sweet mama
sour whiskey
takes the edge off of reality
poverty
violence
erasure
history books won't tell
victims won't be around to tell
emily will never know
suppression
leads to the communities depression
anguish
languish
we love dream catchers
why can't we love the people who made them?
no reparations
no reservations
