How long


How long
how long must we suffer
our life's in pain and sorrow
because we are black or white
we are blind by racism


for how long
how long must we suffer
because we are not Christians or Muslims
we are blind by religion


for how long
how long must we suffer in poverty
because of all these illusion
we are blind by misinformation
