I'm On My Way To America

by Bianca Delarosa

 I'm on my way to America
 To such a place
 Where nostalgic dreams
 Mix with primal screams
 Of dead liberty

I've found the road to America
 The long hard stretch
 Where bones and blood
 Mix with Adobe mud
 And Pilgrims Progress

Here's the way to America
 The middle passage sea
 Where Black Ivory wealth
 Mix with slaver's stealth
 And antebellum nobility

Make your way to America
 In cargo holds
 Where potato blight
 Mix with breadline fights
 And futures sold

Come you all to America
 Through desert lands
 Where bitter thirst
 Mix with memories of hurt
 And bloody hands
