What More Can They Do-Laura Izibor

Leave a Comment

I was listening to the "For Colored Girls" soundtrack, and this song resonated with me. It reminded me how in my darkest hours I would tell the universe to take its best shot because I was not going anywhere and that I would be better after it. That has proven true for me and I am so happy to have backbone. I don't mean that in a bragging way, but we all know people who go to pieces if they break a nail.



I've been dragged across the desert in my bare feet
with no food or water with nowhere to sleep
Been ridiculed and abused
wrongfully accused
What more can they do to me x2

I've been looked out with no reason
With no reason why
Had to look straight into my enemy?s eyes
Been stripped from my head to my toe
Nobody seems to know
What more can they do to me x2

And they took the heart you beat with and they tore it down
They put all your dignity on the ground
Left you afraid and alone

The truth is still unknown
What more can they do to you x2

And they told you to go back where you come from
But you chose not to react
You chose to stay strong

And when they take everything away and still forgiveness you pray
And what more can they take away
What more can they do to you
What more can they take away x7

I've been dragged across the desert in my bare feet with no food or water with nowhere to sleep








Whatever you are, be a good one. - Abraham Lincoln
