To the Beat Down (2017)

Written 04/06/17

Beat down into the ground

My spirit is no longer around

Damned if my voice isn't loud

Cursed in a second I say I'm proud

May those eyes be cast to heaven

Or down to hells layers of seven

Death is the shadow to a broken soul

Where no healing or love makes it whole

What tragedy you faced beloved

What steps you finally apprehended

Our meaning is trivial to the privilege 

Expecting our roots to stay in a village

It's a cold callous look to the beat down

They expect you to smile and never frown
