Come child… Tonight I will not lie I will not attempt to hide what remains to be the truth I will not fill you with false promises of people who might change Tonight I will tell you Your name is Struggle And you shall bear witness to the birth and utter destruction of a great nation You will walk amongst the remains of a land flowing with riches reduced to Starvation and imitation You will see the once great and mighty become forgotten Thus their efforts shall disappear upon the silenced lips of elderly Rather soon forgotten than admired Come child You will birth nations that will be buried between lines And removed from existence Your men will be stripped of their dignity And women ravished You shall lose count of the tears That will fall upon your daughters’ cheek As she too will feel your pain Her own sons will mock her value While depleting her of self-worth Spreading detachment through out your homes Into the streets your men shall run away from responsibility And abandon their children They will begin to believe they can only survive off illegal Activities and many of them will die before reaching a mature age Tonight child… You… Struggle shall witness the destitution of your most cherished but worst of all child… Your sons and daughters shall lose their identity And forget your name They will choose not to remember They will not care They will silence themselves.
