When a Nation Is Divided

When a nation is divided

It cannot last.

Division brews hatred

And political parties destruction.


I stand here as a citizen

My hands are up

My heart is shot

Will I ever be left in this country without fear?


I stand on the outside

You won't let me in

I thought segregation ended with the coming of a King

Why won't you save me?


Loud mouths don't stop talking

They reveal the darkness of a nation

The coming of the devil

Has already proved disastrous


I may be white but I'm okay

White, black, yellow, red

They are all just colors

All the same
