Once A Dream


Once a dream

Sweet equality

Never been

This reality


White and black

Yellow and brown

Red came back

Colors abound


Men and women

Gay and straight

Recognition given

Justice waits


Humans homegrown

Foreigners the lesser

Hatred shown

Our people better


God made all

Every one

Divided we fall

Life undone


Liberty saves

Rising together

From the grave

History remembered


Never again

Injustice prevail

Voices gained

Loud they wail


Whisper and shout

Power defied

Truth aloud

People unified


Righteous indignity

Prejudice fought

Noble humility

Ideally sought


Dream pursued

Reality made

World renewed

Peace is gained
