A Slave's Ambition - Poem by Rushawn Buchanan

Captured forcefully,
Bounded by shackles of shame,
drained of our pride,
But we did what we had to do to survive.
They dictated our lives,
What is the sense of living? We might as well die.
We say no! we died!
We had to live lifeless with the pain each day,
We were nothing, worthlessness embedded in our brains,
Our hearts and souls stained with hatred,
We felt so naked, yet we still walked
the roads with our held high.
We did what we had to do to survive.
