I am always left

And never right. 

I wasn't born to be mean and fight

 

I am not bad

nor am I good

But I will do whatever it takes to protect the land I have stood

 

I have always been a bleeder

Not really a leader

Never a leaver

Denied believer

Deceiver

 

I am not yet a working citizen

But was made through blood and tears

Life laced in your darkest fears

 

Never to be something important

Destined to be forgot

Just waiting for the shot

 

To be me

And to see

My family

happily

Living their life in luxury

Instead of on the street

Blood, dirt, and trampled dreams covering their feet

 

And to dream

of a life

That does not end in blood and the swish of a knife
