How Dare You

I have  been through a war 

Bullets flying pass my face 

Tip toeing around the grenades 



I lived through the smoke 

bounded by chains



I have been through it all

Fighting for equality 

Fighting for freedom 

Fighting for life 



I’ve lived through the protests 

I marched for theirs 

Like I would march for mine



how dare you

The years, the memories, the knowledge



You knocked me down

 Cracked them out of me 



I watched from right above you

As my body went limp 

If my brothers from war 

Could have seen what you did 



Because we lived through the bullets

We tip toed over the grenades 

But all of your hate

is what took me to my grave
