You kiss my lips and leave me in desire
You caress my skin and get me excited
My heart is racing with excitement
and you can feel it as you hold me tight
I vowed before God never to leave you
And to this day I have kept my promise
You are my strength during periods of weakness
My eyes during times of darkness
My heart cries everyday for my dead mother
I try to be strong and don’t shed a tear,
be a man and support my family,
don’t let my kids see me crying
Freedom comes to those who fight
Not to those who stay and cry
And then they party
Believing they can drink their troubles away
I am a slave
not bound by shackles
and not held by chains.
My body is unmarked
My father once told me the world was flat
And that if I was successful enough I could live at the top
I was fascinated with the Idea
Of being able to look down on everyone else.
You have scarred me for life
I was young a foolish
One day the road I am walking to success
Will come to an end
And I will achieve everything I set out to
On that day I will be filled with joy
I stand before you
as a man with flaws,
my design is yet to be completed
and until I am mistake prone.
You have stolen my dream right before my very eyes
and I’m guilty of assisting you.
I thought we were a team
taking on the hardships of life.
