Equal Rights,2011 - Poem by Eric Cockrell

equal rights to live,
equal rights to love.
equal rights to believe,
to speak out, to stand up
and be counted.

equal rights to work,
equal rights to study.
equal rights to build.
equal rights to profess faith,
equal rights to pray.

equal rights to give...
equal rights to live,
equal rights to love!

    Another beautiful poem Eric.
    We all deserve equal rights, but none of us will be given these rights. We must demand equal rights, take equal rights, fight to maintain equal rights. Any who buy into the war invasion game, any dividing issues, fall prey to the classic division game, the establishment status quo divide and conquer game.
    Ladies feminist rights is also rights for your sons, not just your daughters. Rights for your fathers, mothers, who worked on the poverty line and below. To achieve equal rights for yourself and family, support equal rights for every man woman and child on earth. Remember God will eventually judge all issues, justice will come. A good start is love tolerance, for all.
    Do what is right. Might does not decide who is right. Might decides who has the biggest club and the meanest attitude. Peaceful protest worked in India, South Africa, good people died believing in their rights. Peaceful protest can also work for you. If you are strong enough, good enough, moral enough to take it.
