The Right

They say we’re gone
We stand as one
I’m here right now
I’m not alone
Against all tides
We’ll stop the pain
Yet you do blame
They fell for us
With no reward in sight
& now you say I don’t wanna fight??
Who told you I
Wanted this one day?
You dare deny
Its gone beyond all shame
They’re lying dead
You’re asking where’s my bread?
I say what if it were you instead?
You bark at me “I liked the way it was”
There’s no turning back for anyone
Bricks & stones may break my bones
But bullets only leave a hole
Straight in a person’s skull
You see through as he does fall
I say cocktails so what comes to mind?
Not “Molotov” as he bursts in flame
The murder is in my mind today
Its always there endless replay
You stand all night
To protect your own
Who left me here?
Abandoned by them all?
Was it just fear?
Or something much more?
If they are right
Then we are wrong today
If they’re not criminals
Then who did betray?
If they’re not judged
Then they will judge me
Its not enough for them to say sorry
Would you accept their apology?
For all who died
For you & me
I dare not say
Its enough to pray
Not anymore, not after today
If we don’t fight?
Then who has the Right?
You step down now
Then may be your child
The Right to feel
That you’re alive
A human being with human rights
The Right to be
Treated equally like all the rest
We’ve already passed that test
The Right to hold
Your head up high
Not bow it down
Fear in your eyes
The RIght to say
I am free
From all the chains
That shackled me
So if you want to lose that Right
Go ahead & say its fate
Make me know those whom I should hate
By then it will be all too late
