*****************

I might look happy though
But,
In front of my eyes are the walls of slavery.
I might look happy though
But,
Inside my every story there is a pool of blood.
I might look happy though
But,
Inside my soul there are memories of martyrs.
I might look happy though
But,
Inside my single smile there is a sigh of broken promises.
I might look happy though
But,
Inside my every nerve there is a widow shedding her tears.
I might look happy though
But,
Inside the darkness there are women being rapped by saviors.
I might look happy though
But,
The rise of the dawn starts with the wounds of torture.
I might look happy though
But,
The sun sets with the horror of another death.
I might look happy though
But,
The Freedom of life is being caged by the brokers of humanity.
