Only by God’s will; can this green ground be spared
I appeal to that Magistrate of Works and Deeds;
The Binding Arbiter of condemnations and salvation.
In and out of slavery: Hands, both Black and White, were guilty.
Subjugation, exploitation, and genocide: crimes of every Race.
Sanctuary; rebellion; martyrdom . The courage to live and die for
Truth: Virtues covered by many different skins: Honor them all.
Memories and histories of abuse and deprivation;
are poor excuses for abusing and depriving others.
Never , a justification ! What’s been done wrong to us;
Was wrong to do, at all. Just; wrong ! So be Right!
Only Sinners resided in the Garden of Eden: no Saints.
Lying excuses; got them expelled from there: Don’t Lie.
Battles for Justice; are lost less; from enemy strength
Than, from popular indifference and the betrayal of allies:
Stand, for the Truth.
On ears deaf to seduction ; hissing serpents, have little sway;
Nor influence over Minds; humbled by the dignity of the afflicted
Who, struggle on, anyway? No deterrence for Hearts; that beat,
To claim the strength, to aid the less endowed: Help as you can.
Be so, My People: and the garden gate will open for you; again.
The Final Call; is to a struggle:
To make, of yourself, a more upright Being.
Your foes, will then be vanquished;
By Power, far greater than your own: Keep the Faith!!
