I wonder how my ancestors feel Knowing their escape from home Would lead To children ***** in cages
Traced Nameless Unheard of conditions Like their rabid dogs
But really puppies still needing their mothers milk
Who made those cages you call sanctuary Who made those tinfoil sheets you call warmth Who made those regulations? Ripping the child from their parents grip I've seen the ******* pictures Those kids were strangling their mothers and fathers in order to not let go
There's no need for translation This is universal These children are treated like felons With no warrant No warning
Is this justice? Does my so called president get off to this?
Is he not satisfied enough with his spray tan?
He takes it out on us?
I wake up in my bed Every day I cant fathom The nightmare those children wake up to Alone with others like that look just like them. Looking in the reflection their tears molded onto the shivering pavement
I cant even imagine
The thoughts that may race through their young and impressionable minds
Do they think they deserve it? Do they think this is their fault?
If and when they do finally escape
How scarred will they be?
They already have a criminal record for being born
How will they survive in a society that imprisoned them before given an education
You say you want the entire platter But your appetite says it can only Handle a sample Let's see how much you can digest Or is it too much to swallow? You're hungry But you're a fool I get it You don't wanna overeat You want leftovers So many options the next day Yet, you just snack What's up with that?
A concept I've been experiencing People lead you on to believe they want the world from you And when you've almost given it to them They tell you it's too much
Everyone salivates over you for your assets You seem to choose the men that abuse You're black and blue A man with spoken care and knowledge is overdue Your bruises open your eyes They drive you into welcoming infinite skies Dry your eyes You're almost there Lay in bed into the fading night Dream a dream of a better life with beaming light Once you wake, you'll cry no more You'll awaken to a knight that loves to adore He'll slay your sadness He'll buy you tickets to cruises to ensure there will be no more bruises Abusing fades inside No more tears inside Lay and wait, don't hide
