As We Walk

as we walk
the lines of injustice blur
twisted by racial slurs
little innuendos that say i’m superior
fade into the night
as if they were never there
as we walk
the memories of discrimination
by a hate filled nation
rekindle in the thoughts of children
like those who died in South African jails
lynched in southern magnolias
tarred, and feathered
or when OJ was found innocent
then you saw the real color barrier
how dare you let a black man off
when for decades whites did it almost every day
as we walk
don’t hide the truth
in rap songs, poetry, or inside
don’t let your color destroy your pride
white children saying we know it was wrong
hispanics saying we feel it too! !
asians screaming it’s wrong
as we walk
we must all stand strong
what does having a black president really mean?
except a change in history
one man can’t stop a nations misery
as we walk
through the sands of racism
tunnnel through the wall of injustice
run into the pain of life
we must unite
as we walk
