Old Slaves

Old Slaves

 

Chanting the victory song

Their volume filling up the skies

 

Old slaves, old ways

 

Singing about their triumphant return

Their shackles no more

 

Old slaves, old ways

 

Look at their pain written on their minds

 

Old slaves, old ways

 

Crying about their children lost

 

Old slaves, old ways

 

Today their new ones are born free

 

Old slaves, old ways

Do sing and walk back onto the Promised Land

  1. The repetition made it really appear like a song, “old slaves, old ways” Nice!

    I like the concept behind this…or at least what I imagine the concept to be.
