Tell Me Something

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.
