As a child of the sixties
I've seem my share
the names and hatred
legislation passed to
bring a semblance of
equality
Those that came before
black and white
that gave their lives
I salute you
no greater sacrifice
could  I imagine
Have we not learned
from the past
Have we not buried
those demons
We all deserve
CIVIL RIGHTS
to just be
Still we have a
way to journey
on this front
Speak the truth
always
Do what's right
always
Don't hide from
injustice.
