Amerika by Ehab Lotayef

Ehab Lotayef


we haven’t uttered yet,
redacted by your doubt
Liberties, we thought that we enjoyed,
are tangled in the chain

Only within the artificial freedoms you allow us are we free
Only within the confines of our prison cells
can we maneuver as we will

Who stabbed me in the back …
I’ll never know
I only heard them laugh as darkness fell

Will children play again?Will dawn ever return?
Will emptiness forever fill the room?
As we convinced ourselves
we can defeat the essence of defeat
the gates of Hell reopened
and we woke up in DC
