POEMS BY PAP HOLLIDAY
FAITH

BE STRONG BE BRAVE THIS WILL COME TO AN END

THAT’S WHAT I TOLD MYSELF WHILE THEY PUNISHED MY FRIENDS

DON’T GIVE UP KEEP PUSHING THE ENDS COMING REAL SOON

THAT’S WHAT I TOLD MYSELF AFTER MONTHS OF NO HELP

BE TOUGH AND BELIEVE KEEP FIGHTING IT THROUGH

THAT’S WHAT I TOLD MYSELF WHILE THEY MURDERED YOU

HAVE HOPE NO MATTER WHAT AND KEEP MY HEAD HIGH

THAT’S WHAT I TOLD MYSELF SEEING MY FAMILY DIE

I‘VE MADE IT TO FAR TO JUST TO GIVE IT ALL UP

THAT’S WHAT I TOLD MYSELF AFTER THE WOUNDS AND CUTS

 ALL OVER ITS DONE THOSE WORDS I WOULD SAY

THAT’S WHAT I BELIEVE AS LONG AS I KEEP FAITH


PLEASE


DO TO THEM WHAT THEY’VE DONE TO ME

TAKE AWAY THEIR FREEDOM AND LET ME FREE

WHY SHOULD THEY BREATHE TAKE A LOOK AT ME

I’M NO ONE TO THEM THAT’S WHAT THEY SEE

TAKE THEM FROM FAMILY SO THEY CAN SEE

HOW IT FEELS TO LIVE IN THE GHETTO STREETS

WHY GIVE THEM RIGHTS AND NONE FOR ME

THEY CONTROL MY LIFE WHEN WILL I SPEAK

STARVE THEM TO DEATH AND LET US EAT

WE FIGHT AND KILL OVER SOUP AND BREAD

THEY EAT AND WATCH US END UP DEAD

WHY DID THIS HAPPEN IN THE FIRST PLACE

JUST ERASE IT PLEASE TAKE THIS AWAY

YOU LIKE WATCHING THEM KILL US AND DOING THIS
 
LOOK AT OUR FACES LOOK AT THE KIDS

NOW TELL THEM THAT IT IS WHAT IT IS

THIS CANT BE TRUE TELL THEM THEIR FOOLISH

 HAS THIS ALL HAPPENED BECAUSE WE’RE JEWISH?
