Forgive What Was Never Said

I can sing above only when your freedom is born,
my light from below is light leading you to shore
out of the prison that was your birth and place,
they didn’t care: children can’t breathe thick air.
I was down for you, down inside the ground
shackled by blinding chains, a numbing pain.
they drank your blood mixed with sweet lemonade
and cheered gruesome gods of cadaverous shade
but no more will they steal your innocence to live
no more will they rape the blindness of simple sense
for those are brave heroes who collect your tears
to rain upon the world as the Great Flood did rain
evil to be drowned in its own Hollywood massacre
where they vainly tried our heaven’s wings to shed.
Pray for the children. Forgive what was never said.
