Was any of it necessary?
The breaking of our hearts
and the tearing down of our homes?
The false promises in the name of freedom?
Has it served us any purpose?
The death of our fellow brothers
and the unjust imprisonment of our sisters?
The false promises in the name of democracy?
Are we living as we planned?
When we marched peacefully or in war
with our flags, fists, and guns waving high?
The false promises in the name of liberation…
Where has the struggle left you?
