America, why do you hate me?When you were building your housesOn the backs of my kinfolkYou had no issue with the color of my skin.
America, why do you rape me?You incite violence withYour need to control my bodyAnd police my gender.
America, why don’t you love me?I’ll never fully understand whyMy ability to fall in love with any personFuels the hatred in your heart.
America, why can’t you see me?I was born in your bosom,Fragile and delicate,And blindly left in your care.
America, how can you hate meAnd still claim to be The Land of the Free?
