Undocumented Unafraid : a poem

Being undocumented
Used to bring you shame
With no one to give fault to
Our parents were the ones to blame
.
Not having a 9 digit number
you wrte stripped of your rights
Making you depressed and withdrawn
With the real war an inner fight
.
Feeling alone
With no shoulder to cry
When they asked are you legal
You made up a lie 
.
You wonder and wonder
What will I do after school
When everyones recieving scholarships
While I stand like a fool
.
Prohibited from working 
Because of a s.s card
Life went from being difficult
To extremly hard
.
AM I THE ONLY ONE
You scream and you yelp
Can anyone hear me
I truely need help
.
Yes we can help you
GUYA is here
We’ll reach out our hand
With nothing to fear
.
We must win all our fights
To defend our unalienable rights
We will always stand
To protest this unlawful banned
Whereve you see us
We will march in a parade 
Celebrating the beauty
Of students who are undocumented and unafraid
