Our Promise Unfulfilled


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
