Don’t Give Away Your Seat

We’re on the verge of something great

Yet we are a forgetful nation:

We hold the key to innovation.

We nurture hope without missing a beat.

We march for what’s right

We march to be free.

Don’t sit back down

Don’t give away your seat

If we allow our hearts to be blinded by hate

The new way slips out beneath our feet

If we allow our minds to carry deadweight

We lose new ways in which to defeat

How we’ve shadow-boxed this fight

But even a display is no guarantee

That white sees black and black sees brown

Brothers and sisters! This is our countdown!

Let us see ourselves through others’ eyes, not through the holes of a heinous sheet.

We are all God’s children, perfectly imperfect, not one is elite!

Let us be measured by a strong character and not a physical trait.

Let us love one another whether gay, transgender, or straight.

Be united by distinction, not distinct through separation

Be the salt, be the light, be the fleet that stops degradation.

And last but not least, our Oneness in love is what makes life complete

So see magnificent color- see beauty- be love- when you meet.

This is not just mine but our children’s plea.

Stand up to fear and make hate obsolete!

God speaks through our actions and our eyes so we don’t have to fight

May His thunderous voice be heard at our launching site.

In the counsels of Heaven, there is only One worthy to represent me.

His sacrifice paid the price for the world to see

That we can all wear the jewels that represent the crown.

So let’s shine bright and take back our country, state, and town!
