Fight for Civil Rights


United States

The pain they felt
I cannot imagine
They fought for rights
With such great passion
They fought for right
With all their strength
They fought to be equal
To fight this hate
The fight for rights
Lasted many year
The ones who fought
Shed many tears
They won the fight
They won at last
The time of fighting
Is in the past.
