A Stranger in a Strange Land
I stood in disrespect as they harnessed our breath
From me and family members of what was left...
After crossing a sea from the death of our humanity.
The journey lasted beyond any hope-filled promise
And whatever we sustained became our belief.
Their White God never exposed their secular deceit
Our brawn bodies shielded remnants of our soul
While our captors perpetuated their perversion
For they ate at the fruit of fundamental darkness.
I could only dream that the new land of captivity
Raped from natives who faced their own survival
Would be different in the future from our arrival.
