Down on my Knees

Please don’t ignore me ’cause my skin is rough
with tattered clothes upon my frame
with stains of blue and black
that sting the soul with shame

The blood inside me is just like yours
when beaten, we feel pain
when raped, we feel rage
when held tight with love, we cry

My walk upon this land is shortening
with people gone, I once had hugged
so full of fear of what’s to be
I fall onto my knees

Pray someday our world will see
all the you’s and me’s
who fought the fight to set us free
that will someday walk right next to me

Love to all – Dr. Deb
