A word so simple yet hideous 
It’s implications incidious 
Man’s ultimately injustice to man
Flowing like molten lava
Since time began 
Men with conscience-with honor -with 
morals
Enslaved people with who they had no 
quarrels
Their code of honor washed away  with the blood of their horror 
My country-the land I love
Is not immune to the words  above
With so much to build on and so much 
to give 
We denied good people their right to live
Their glorious history thousands years 
old
Taken from their homeland and brutally 
sold
My country with magic in their “Declaration “
Wears the cloke and the shame of a beautiful nation 
The result of this action a permanent 
stain
Is written in history with a tragic refrain 
Those shipped like cattle across the sea 
Their children and their children still fight to be free 
It’s been too long in coming - it hasn’t 
come yet
Like other world horrors we should never forget 
My country’s history is galant and proud 
Recognizing injustice and expressing 
out loud 
The time for” together “is not yet done 
People still fighting to get their rights won
The pride back in my country when we call it ONE
