Dreaming Of Freedom

By Caleb James K.

Black water as far as the eye can see
no way out
can never be free.

And the struggle only gets worse
when the survivors reach the New World.

Forced to work
Forced to dance
Without a break
Without a chance.

No reason to live
too scared to die
screaming to the heavens
asking the Gods why.

What did they do wrong
to make this happen?

Now singing these freedom songs
praying to go home
where they were kings
before their rights were gone.
