How We Gon’ Get Free

20140312-214055.jpg

Chained bodies
Shackled minds
Truths told
Lies accepted
Devastation wrought
Both then, And now.

Systems designed
Oppression in mind
Flight is necessary
Traveling papers are costly
Many aspire
Few obtain
More are caught up
Engulfed by power unseen.

In circumstance
Trapped
Stolen
Herded
Stripped
Caged
Stripped once more
But this time of more than clothes.

Released into a maze
Designed from inception
With no exit in mind
Rejection
Frustration
Denigration
Litigation
And begins the cycle
Once more.
