Why Are We Still Waiting For Equality

We live in a world
Where far too many
Are still waiting
For equality
And far too many

Still live in poverty
And its all because
Of the damn pride
Of those in power
Who think they have
The god given right
To say who is equal
And who is damned

To say who lives
And who dies

But bullshit says you
And bullshit says I
And now is the time
For us to rise
To fight back
And make things right
And show those in power
We will take it no more
Because I don't know
About you
But in my mind
There have already

Been far too many

To suffer this each
And every night
