Check Yourself

by Troytribe

Shackled by the dark oppressor who has no clue
Locked in a cage of rage
As animals in a broken zoo
Why are we on display?
Why is this your way?
Check the mentality of yourself
Who’s to blame for your monstrosity?
Just you and no one else
Walk in our shoes for one long day
Uncomfortable fit for you, wouldn’t you say
See the sorrows of our lives unfold
Like a tattered book untold
Look through the withered eyes
At the pain we wearily see
Shed a stinging teardrop
At the hardship and poverty
Hear the cries of tormented souls ring out
As the hot brands make our flesh hang off
Legs swiftly traveling at a feverish pace
Running, running
Trying to win the race
