It is I.. I am the voice on the mountain
I am the wail in the streets.. homeless
I am a child born of justice
Am I to be abandoned in my helplessness..
taken advantage of in my innocence
Where is my solace in this protected place
I ask.. I ask.. where indeed..
America.. do not turn your face
Long ago ..You promised me great things
from the mountains where freedom rings
I am here still seeking them
It is me who cries over the hills
suffering of Agent Oranges ills..
my nightmares long becoming skills
I am the American Veteran
..whose blood has transfused you
Do not turn your face.. look true
America ..I am calling to you
I am here seeking justice and truth
Have I not served you and done my part
Hear me.. at least in your heart
