Our Promise Unfulfilled

civilrights

Each their story

Together make one

Outside category

Fading colors run

 

Segregated past

Moving forward

No more caste

Progress a reward

 

Struggle not over

Success yet achieved

A racist hangover

Eradication incomplete

 

Some more equal

Others deemed less

Perceptions unreal

We must protest

 

Leadership absent

It is up to us

People ascend

Politicians a bust

 

Democracy diminished

The nation betrayed

A fight unfinished

Equality delayed

 

Resist the cowards

In principle defend

Fight abusive power

Reverse the trend

 

No longer divided

Society redeemed

In truth united

Remember the dream
