Why?Do you want to tell me why

I live in this nation


Hate and confusion

Why I was chosen to be melanated to the darkest hue


Why do I have to bear the pain of young people

Why do I have to fight for my human rights


Why is it that the world has a hard time with love

Why is it that my life doesn’t matter to you


Let me tell you

You were raised up and a young age 

You were taught not love but hate

Now you see the blood that stains the grains

Of my people who labored for years without gains

Pain and pain but never no gain

How can I even regain

A peice of confidence 

When I’m confined 

And put into your system and built to your design 

Maybe one day I’ll find what needs to be seen

And I’ll show there the world the scenes 

Of love and peace 

So we can release 

All the hatred and cease 

All the wars and hunger

So maybe the nation’s can’t plunder

Through my family tree

Only to find out they can’t see

Because well they took it from me

I was robbed from my origin

And told that I was a sin 

And that nothing I can do would help us win

So for 245 years I sat around and though it was the end 

Wake up now is the time 

To change your intellect and design

It’s time to grind to the top

So we can hop over invisible hurdles 


Why did I have to say that?

Well. . .

Because you are sleeping 

Wake up

It’s about time
