I’m Still Breathing
© 2017 Kashimana Ahua

Here I lie, with nothing to say
I can’t feel? So I can’t be real
where’s the sky? all I see is gray
leave me here, leave me to decay

I’m so cold, cut by all the stones
raw and used, for law I’m abused
bought and sold, paying for their thrones
Close my eyes, dream of rescue drones

I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing

Where am I? used to have a place
stolen from, my school and my home
Now I cry? rage at my disgrace
I’ll survive, I’m no hopeless case

I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing
I’m still breathing

And I’ll dance in the dark
Till I see that little girl
Bring back my girl
Bring Back our girls
Bring Back our girls

We’re still breathing
We’re still breathing
We’re still fighting
We’re still breathing
