When did we get thrown back in time
to when discrimination was praised,
to when racism was the fad,
to when we had to hide who we are,
to when life was the last concern.
When did we become all our mistakes,
when did we allow hate into our house,
when did we start rejecting the needy?
When will love be about all who are living,
when will it be about anyone other than ourselves,
when will we become who we once strived to be?
When did we go back in time?
