covered by all the walls
the voice was loud
didn’t hear a single word
the tears hit the floor

the cry was in silence
the voice had ups and down
emotions filled the room
taken away was freedom

the cry of a mother
nothing that i know
i’m needed right now
voice getting lower

heat rising up
lights getting brighter
ancestors listening attentively
what am i gonna do?

can i get down and pray?
you’re upset
making me feel weak
you’re not gonna speak
