She’s read history books about this moment 

learned it happened years ago but it had ended 

yet it’s the same situation, same troubles, just a new opponent  


She saw hope for them, then it all changed 

One step forward now two steps back 

A president who demonstrated hope now exchanged 


She can’t stand the calls of “give him a chance” 

She’s heard the slurs, the bashing, all over minor differences 

Now more than ever she knows she must take a stance 


America, the home of the brave 

Brave enough to shout hateful comments  

What’s different now than how we were treated as slaves? 


It is time, more than ever, to come together 

We need to stop fighting each other 

Because America is at the end of its' tether
