An act for freedom.

Civil Rights, a hope to be free
when all around, is segregation we see
Disrespect, no justice all the time
Segregation is such a worldly crime

Isolation towards groups of people at most
Pain and disrespect from coast to coast
Murdering just because of the colour of skin
Killing and killing the ultimate sin.

All people are equal, the King once said
but now the so called equals have fled
if all of us are equal then why do we battle
beating and disrespect every day and night

They don`t deserve what have they done
we fight them and think we have won
let`s stop the death, the disrespect, every last bit of it.
for if we don`t this world surely will crumble and fall from it.
