Agony Of Yester Years

Rating: 5.0
There were days life was not fair to live
The years hardness of life brought us to our knees
The nights we thought we could be safe running to the grave
The period outcast was far better than the slave
Days our freedom was bundled in chain
In the middle of life joy walked passed our way
Barefooted our destinies went astray
Scavenging the street wearing frustration like a mask on the face
Under the moonlight we coil waiting for the world to fade
Decades grief eat deep our vein
Spirit of departed African folks crawl around our homes
