The Prison you have Created By Mindy Vande Brake

What has led us here?
We are pushed aside
We are separated from our land, houses, and even family
You isolate me from everything I have ever known
This is the prison you have created for me
Walls are being built to keep me out like a prisoner in jail
You have created laws to take away my freedoms and now I’m being made to go through checkpoints, as if I was a hardened criminal.
This is the prison you have created for me
You tell me where I can travel and when I can harvest my land
This is the prison you have created for me
Why do I deserve this?
I’m just trying to live a normal life but at every turn there is another road block that you have set up for me
Will this pain and suffering ever end for us?
This is the prison that you have created for me.
