Tell me something -
I don't understand
I thought we were living in the promised land.
I believed in each person's dignity
And their right to truly be free
To walk where they wanted
To go where they planned
To do the same as any other man.
But now Garner, Martin and Brown
Their lives were cut short -
They were cut down
Where does that leave me with my beliefs
If all I have left is unspeakable grief.
