CHAINS

From Africa
They brought us;
In chains
And they
Wouldn’t let us know
Who we were!

We worked
For them;
Was beaten
By them;
People who wouldn’t
Couldn’t
Never love us
Never even knew
Who we were!

They taught us to hate
Ourselves
Our blackness
Our family
And now, our chains
Are our own
Cause we still do not know
Who we were
Or
Who we are!
