If This Is My Country

If This Is My Country

1 min 138 1 min 138

If this is my country

Then, where is my home?

If this is my country

Then, where is my freedom?

If this is my country

Why am I silenced?

When I speak up?

If this is my country

Why am I dying of hunger?

If this is my country

Why am I dying of thirst?

If this is my country

Why am I dying cold-blooded?

If this is my country

Why is it safe for children?

If this is my country

Why then is it unsafe for girls?

If this is my country

Where are the law and justice gone?

For its been far too long.

If this is my country

And it's rich why am I poor?

If this is my country

Why do I have to prove it to others

Just by a piece of paper or card?

If this is my country

Let me breathe and make it not

More difficult than it seems today

For there will be no one left

To be in a country like this.

This is my country

My heart, mind, and soul tells me so

To wake up and fight and learn to roar.
