I remember a time so peaceful
I remember a time of love and grace
A time when all hate was displaced
Now the world is laced in a fast moving pace
Heading to a place of race
Race as in racial tension
All our peers getting suspension
So Ms. Smith gets her pension
I remember a time of blindness
A time numb to the pressure of the world
The days and years spent sleep to a world alive
My eyes open wide hurts the troubled soul bound to my flesh
Awake I am and awake I’ll be
Till God departs me from this vast sea
Please remember me and my glee
Keep fighting till you get your reprieve
Don’t stop till our reparations are paid
Never become delayed
Be ready to be paid
Be ready for a degrade
Be ready to fade.
