Forgotten Not

I see you, man
The forgotten prison you were born into
Watched over by prison guards who forgot they were prison guards
Held in place by the lead walls that became the stage of our made up world
That became the sky, the ocean, the moon, the land upon which our play was staged

I see you, woman
The form that you were molded into
Shaped by invaders who forgot they were invaders
Who made you feed and clothe the captors that became the new heads of our family
That became the priests, the teachers, the rulers, the law upon which the stone was laid
