'Cry Freedom' - Poem by Alvin Willis

My dignity
Is forever lost in pity

I can't sleep
Without a weep

Like a bee trapped in a web
I'm bound

My days are working
My nights praying

And always searching
For I need something

Like a lioness chasing a fawn
I'm exhausted

My name is forever gone
Now replace with one

With no voice
I'm left without choice

Like the wind spreading the dust
I'm dead
