WHERE WE COME FROM, WE COME FROM NOTHING.

WHERE WE COME FROM, WE COME FROM NOTHING.

 

Hear our voices
Wipe our tears chi
Somewhat life seems inconsequential
Every caboodles look inane
And our honey tastes bitter

Where we come from, we come from nothing
Where we come from, no lunch money
Sorrow is the food we eat
Complaint is what fills our belly
Just like cancer
Bitterness is eating us away
Where we come, no daddy in the house

Our water struggles to be seen
Many times they’ve seized our happiness
Because we couldn’t afford to pay
Really this life is unfair to some of us
They’ve written us down in existence
Anytime we try to smile at the world
they cast us aside.

Wipe our tears chi
Hear our voices
We’re tired of answering the son of whom are you?
We’re tired of saying what our eyes have seen
Our shoulders are dropping like tears
They’re really happy seeing us broken
Just because we come from nothing

Wipe our tears chi
We’ve seen infants died before their grandmas
We don’t just want to survive chi
We also want to thrive
For they’ve written us down in existence
But our hope are springing high
Hear our voices…
