    Forsaken

    Afrika our Motherland
    from where we came
    Black Roses
    stolen and taken
    to be forsaken
    they changed our name
    Our families torn apart
    They robbed us
    And killed us
    Leaving us brokenhearted
    I am not mistaken
    for some, there was no escapin’.

    History shows that:
    We were placed around the world
    and never returned
    Through their brutal treatment
    We were placed into a deep sleep
    A sleep or fear
    On this western hemisphere
    They thought we would never awaken
    They wanted. . . Afrikan Roses
    to be forgotten
    They wanted our Afrikan culture to be uncouple forever......
    We will not be forsaken
    There is no mistaken
