We Must Fight For Our Own
We must love our own
We must fight for our own
We must love and fight for the victims
Because they’re part of our teams
We simply cannot let them suffer
We must respect their pride and candor
Under the bridge where they seek sanity
Freedom, decency, hope and better opportunities
Over the dangerous waves where they seek liberty
Men, women and children face death and controversies
All God’s children merit living in peace
All God’s children are created equal
It is the same red blood seeking justice
We all have one body, one heart and one soul
We must stand for the rights of everybody
Regardless of the color that we all see
The Sea is tired of drowning so many
The sharks are sick of devouring so many
The bombs no longer want to kill so many
The bullets are tired of piercing so many
And the flowers no longer want to be part
Of so many funerals
And it’s shameful that so many heads have no heart
Oh! Brave soldiers and poor generals
We must not love our own
We must not fight for our own
P.S. Peace and Love. Paix et Amour. Paz y Amor.
