Our Expedition

Written by: Leila Hadi

How can I define to you in a rhyme
My pain, melodically, acquired with time
How can I make anyone feel what I feel
When all I know are lies, nothing is real
Let me bring you down with me
As we walk through the fires, tell me what you see
Let me throw you to the loins blindfolded
Stand your ground and see how long you can hold it
Give me 18 years to destroy your worth
I’ll be in your brain til you regret your birth
Only when you have to hide like I hid
Will you know the pain that I did
