Middle Child

Y’all counted us out,
Dehumanized treated like animals,
Loaded us up,
Filled every slave ship on the list.
Deception is the tactic,
You’re jest all the woke strong ones are dying,
But the naive unconscious are lit. 
This is for all my brothers and sisters who jumped ship,
The thought and reality of captivity,
Too much so death was their only wish.
Freedom is my mission that’s why I can’t quit,
Disgracing my temple was never my shit,
My spirit came from the ancestors my only gift.
