Equality Poem MMP 11.02.2020/2

Updated: May 4, 2022


 

you declare you see me dimly

through a glass that will not shine

though I stand before you boldly

trim in rank and marking time


equality

I will be free

equality

I will be free


You do own to hear me faintly

as a whisper out of range

while my drums beat out the message

and the rhythms never change


equality

I will be free

equality

I will be free


You announce my ways are wanton

that I fly from man to man

but if I'm just a shadow to you

could you ever understand


equality

I will be free

equality

I will be free


We have lived a painful history

we know the shameful past

but I keep on marching forward

and you keep on coming last


equality

I will be free

equality

I will be free


Take the blinders from your vision

take the padding from your ears

and confess you've heard me crying

and admit you've seen my tears


equality

I will be free

equality

I will be free


Hear the tempo so compelling

hear the blood throb through my veins

Yes, my drums are beating nightly

and the rhythms never change


equality

I will be free

equality

I will be free
