    i saw my brothers
    thrown into the waters
    fed
    like food
    to the big fish

    i saw my sisters
    used and abused
    and beaten
    when she refused
    ...still used.

    i wish
    for the jungle
    {the bush}

    I SAW

    women screaming
    and men crying
    who do not cry
    ...do not scream

    many things {i saw}

    my fight for freedom was one of futility
    so i ran to be free
    why did GOD let this happen to me
    allow them to make a slave of me

    CHAINED

    robbed of my dignity

    a curiosity to contemplate
    ...to conversate over
    but whether anyone knows
    there are those who would see you {me}
    across that sea we crossed so long ago

    the bush {the jungle} was my playground.
