Blue-Eyed Devil

by B.T. Bonner and Trina Williams-Emigh

I saw you coming
But, you had a smile on your face
Despite the color of your skin,
and it being Africa
You didn't look out of place
So I thought nothing of it

Thought nothing of what you ask?

......You know,
How you moved in
And coerced me out
With fruitful lies falling from your mouth
Enlisting me in foresaking my own
For some monetary gift
Indeed had I known the outcome
That my people would befall
You blue-eyed devil,
I wouldn't have allowed you near us at'all

And now in this promised land...
of milk and honey
That you stole me to..
Then sold me to
 - for money
I reside
And in this hell
 - we coincide
Yet I long to be free
I can't see it happening
As long as you occupy a space.....alongside of me
And I know in my pain, you revel
For you are nothing,
But a blue-eyed devil

I remember all 40 of your twistes lies
the very words..... spoke so clear
when YOU up-rooted my family tree
and brought it over here
You planted my feet
in a shallow grave
You made me your SlaVe.....
The truth was always there
in the blinding blue light of your eyes
impairing my vision
destroying my life
You Exposed me
to your trickery
and diabolical scheme
Another Blue-eyed Devil
Selling twisted dreams!

Now my life I reclaim
Finally remembering my name
No longer prisoner of myself
No longer captured by Shame
Your hold on me is broken
A bent link on a rusted chain
Your baby blue eyes....
........a little less intense
Your cunning words..... of little substance
Minus the message you left behind
Forever etched in stone
Beware of the Blue eyed Devil
when you're away from Home!
