Can anyone become successful?
Black or white? Boy or girl?
Indeed, it has become quite stressful
trying to make a difference in this world.
We try not to discriminate,
but some come from generations
of elders who were taught to hate
different people from different nations.
"Equal rights for everyone"
seems much easier said than done.
How many lives have been taken
by a racist with a gun?
More and more tears fall every day
due to loved ones lost.
Is this the price we have to pay
to live in America?
Those who pray for world peace
take few steps to achieve it.
Anything is possible, but
you must do more than believe it.
Today I ask my fellow man
to put aside our wishful thinking.
Hand in hand, let's take a stand,
and save our nation - a ship that is sinking.
