I Dream of Freedom

Ancestors violated by the oppressors

Future generations conflicted with

The facts of this history

But the truth remains a mystery

I think of the book Exodus

Why have they come for us?

Pharaoh let my people go

Caged and treated like animals




These acts are related to what happened

Over 400 years ago

They say slavery is no more.

Then why do those who look like me

Still being shackled?

We are human and should be treated

As such

Our bodies are not to be displayed as a

Sexual object

Our young women shouldn’t be forced

To sell their temples for pleasure

Our souls belong to God Almighty

Not to be sold for monetary gain.

I dream of freedom for my people

Until it happens I’ll continue

To pray for freedom.

Pharaoh let my people go
