You Dont Know

You don't know what its like To live in this world alone You don't know what it feels like To have no love at home Or to be looked at as nothing more Than what people expect to see You don't know what it feels like To be me To live in my world Where my people do crimes Because the system lies Our true ability will never shine We're a people that will never grow We kill ourselves Instead of seeing what could be accomplished With a little ""soul"" This nations not to blame We're the ones keeping us in shame
