If We Must Die: My People

Rating: 5.0
If We Must Die:
Author's Synopsis: If We Must Die is dedicated to the memory of Claude McKay, Harlem Renaissance and Jamaican born poet)

My people if we must die:
Let it not result from, being unable to serve the cause for the betterment of humankind. Or from being denied a seat around the table, in the land of the free, and the home of the brave.

My people if we must die:
Let it not result from, anger and reprisal against each other, instead of sitting down in peace and love, to bring about God's blessings, understanding, tranquility and a true quality of life.

My people if we must die:
Let it not result from, the thirst or want of righteousness and lack of God's salvation.Like dry bones with no voice, rotting away in a valley of condemnation without God's grace.
