WHO NEEDS THEM

They taunt & torment us

now they try to control us

tell me ,who in a free nation needs controlling .

PROTECTION ? ,who needs it anyway ,

when the oppressors run & drive this system .

Oh!,ENTICED they do listen to our lamentations,

The haunting cries of all those DYING in the hateful grip of their system .

What audacious crook, spreading words of equality

in a world infatuated by inequality & part of society ,the previledged slaves who understand the system ,yet passionately lift up their arms in a song of war declaring superior .

Now help me understand !

help me understand what freedom is ,

when living is a sentence .

when the chains of poverty & those of our own responsibilities anchor us

devotionally to monumental statues belonging to our oppressors .

I've been to so many places ,seen too many faces .

All silently protesting ,let me arise ,rise up & work .

Awake though it hurts so much to live .

My shame is excepting it .

Though i arise to immidiate reminders of our struggles

refusing my wounds to heal ,i know................

we must survive .........
