Tattooed In The Cradle

Copyright 1998 Amy L Hitt

Born in the generation gap
Slapped before our first breath
Judged by where we chose to land
Right up to our death

Can’t see the forest at all
Through our family trees
Born into strengths and weaknesses
Judgments and beliefs

Tattooed in the cradle
Predestined by our birth
Tattooed in the cradle
But we decide our worth

Ain’t whether born with or learned
It ain’t who’s to blame
It’s how to erase the label
Not cover up the pain

Letting someone else live our lives
Is a form of dying
It’s like walking suicide
But we are worth reviving

Tattooed in the cradle
Predestined by our birth
Tattooed in the cradle
But we decide our worth

That tattoo is a blueprint
Of what we’re here to do
To unify the left and the right
Remember the true you

Tattooed in the cradle
Predestined by our birth
Tattooed in the cradle
But we decide our worth
Yes, we decide our worth

Only you can decide your worth
