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!
