I am locked inside this cage, without the loving arms of my mother, or the sturdy arms of my father, and it’s all because of your hatred for the “other.”
I am your child now. We’re all your children now. Please don’t forget us, or let them hurt us. We’re only children; you should protect us.
Will you help us find our parents? Will you unlock this cage?
Will you help us find our families? Will you let go of your rage?
We are locked inside this cage, and there is no one here who loves us, and the strangers here won’t help us, and it’s all because you’ve forgotten we’re all human.
And it’s all because you’ve forgotten we’re all human.
