Treated poorly and beaten down.

Why couldn't whites find common ground?

Left to fend for themselves.

like a forgotton toy on the shelf.


This going on for years to pass 

Like a never ending hour glass

Forrbidden from places because of their color. 

They are the same, if only it were discovered.


As years go on it gets better. 

When the storm passes we'll come together.

Soon from now we'll look back. 

Wondering why equality we lacked.
