We stand here, looking back
Seeing the hate of color
Mixed in with people’s differences

An intervention is needed
With hope for a lead change
Heading toward protection anew

We are blocked by a wall
Which leads to a new beginning
Away from a hypocritical downfall

It is by the decree of old law
Which is fought against daily
We continue our separate paths

But with the invent of a new law
Comes the hope of shining freedom
And the demise of separation
