I do not want to write

I want to stand up and fight

I want to take on this perilous plight

I want to force others to see the light

I want to scream truth with all my might

I want to shift from all bark to all bite

I want to make a difference if only slight

I want to keep going until the sinners are contrite

Because only then will a new dream take flight

I am not content waiting on a white knight

As if restoring justice is just an oversight

We must be honest and forthright

And together this history we will rewrite
