Once A Dream

social-justice

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
