DOOR OF NO RETURN

Chained and shackled
Across the Atlantic they sailed
Livin' lives of transient bondage
Aboard putrid vessels en-route on
An arduous passage through the door of
No return from Alkebulan to America
Human seeds transplanted
From the shores
Of many nations ago
Livin' lives in permanent bondage
Slaves on swelterin' plantations
Devoid of culture and name
In darkness and shame
Livin' lies of freedom
And justice for all

  1. The Middle Passage across the Atlantic Ocean from Africa to the Americas, brought over an unknown number of millions of enslaved African men and women.
