A Life In The Usa
Author: TriTran


You took away my freedom
And bury my heart in fire.
Now I just have a shadow to cover my soul
When the snow stings and the sun burns.

You dumped my joy in the deep freeze,
Now I lived in tearful misery ever since.
You lacerated my flesh without mercy
And treated me like an animal.

You took away my liberty
And expected me to be happy.
Here on your land I suffered a thousand pains.
O, Americans, what kind of man art thou?

------- Author's Notes -------

there is no freedom for me on independent day
