I sat and looked around tonight- and wished with all my heart,
That each white face would change to black, that would be a start.
They'd hurry home to love ones- who wouldn't let them in,
Though nothing would have changed, except the color of their skin.
There is a sea that beckons me, -- called "Deep Despair,"
And hopelessness and sorrow -- always lead me there.
Each drop of water in it -- has at one time, been a tear,
It reflects my mixed emotions -- I can see them crystal clear.
