Incarceration is the
And Isolation of families
which leads to the
interrogation of visitors that imposes the humiliation and Defamation of their characterization.
I’m not the one who is punished -but your assassination of my dignity when I go through the detector, Makes me feel lessor, all cause I have a loved one behind bars- You take this too far Check my background Check my pockets, Am I dressed right?
Did I violate
this is just your method
To make sure we all see
What prison life really means.
How the incarcerated affects us all
We the people
are not at all
Equal as you all recall
Separation and segregation
We’re not united in this nation.
I visited my dad..
couldn’t sit on his lap
CO gave my dad a tap
That’s enough of that
Couldn’t give my dad an embrace
Without a CO all up in our face
4 years old I would never see
my dad be there for me
I was an orphan
just like Annie
Hard knock life for us
I used to ride the joint connection bus
From Newark to Trenton, NJ
State prison to see my daddy
Rafael Luciano, I am his daughter
Comes from he
I am him and he is me..
Society can’t make me hate you
These laws are made to break you
And me apart
Because our skin is tan and dark
But I won’t let them make me think
Less of you daddy
Forever and ever you are father
I will cherish you like no other
They took you away from me
To make me struggle
To make our legacy buckle
As long as I’m conscience I will speak
Of all the injustice done to thee
It’s not right
It’s not fair
I’m 40 and you’re still in there.
As long as I live
I will always be
Daddy’s lil girl to my daddy...
