The Songs of Uprising, Social Injustice and the
Raw Truths to the listener where Adoptee's find our only support in the world.
I found Roots Reggae when I was young and on my own. It Is to me my group of people that are suffering at the hands of the social hierarchy's use, control and domination over the social outcast. Forced to struggle, unaccepted an entire race of people intentionally kept down, abused and discarded by high society. As adopted children we know this dialog well as it is our dialog of being used,
to fulfill the desires of others with our only possession our childhood. Most human beings are born with a family, a culture and owning their self.
Adoptees are stripped of family, culture and self.
We only have a childhood that is used by others to fill the adopter's voids in adulthood.
They use our childhood's innocence and then discard us as strangers when we reach adolescence and begin to develop cognitive understanding that erases the previous state of childhood ignorance.
As adopted children are only temporary distractions to the complicated lives of those who used us.
Music is a way to escape, and to reflect on how adoption has impacted our lives so terribly.
