The Right to Rights.

Segregation, discrimination.
No sense of limitation,
Prejudice nations filling frustrations,
Inalienable rights with no representation.
Pure humiliation.

Always give, never take,
This is a choice we must make.
Rights never won, seem foresaken,
Today I promise action will be taken.

To get our way,
We'll need bait on the hook.
But we will not pay,
For the way that we look.

We have different hair, different skin, different eyes.
Different friends, different family, different lies.
But we share similar fingers and similar toes,
So why we judged by only those.

Some are shorter and some are taller,
Some have a son and some have a daughter.
We share a heart beat below our left collar,
And mine is no better than anyone's.
