Where I Was Born


I was born in a country of darkness
From a lot of mud and dirtiness
I was born in a black hole from luminous
Nothing can hold me tight
To keep me from the light

I grew up in poverty
From a town of cruelty
I am the auspicious of this town
Our family choice is always down
Just like i sat thinking about my future

I was born where faith has disappear
From a city failure is not their fear
I was born in a province of famine
Where my people are starving
This is where i was born
