Forced Into War

By Huncho Faulk


Bills after bills

And still in poverty

Selling our land

And still not enough money

Every day execution,

Starvation Ripped from my Family and Friends

Took for work

Everyday, Everynight, it's work work work

Without money, without food.

Everyone's always in a bad mood.

No time to play, No time to hang

Its always one big bang,

When they take everything in the end

They take all of our hard work and dedication

We always waking up sick with no medication

Dying day by day nobody's stays

We all are just hard working for the pay.
