This One is for U! (928 hits)

In honor of the ones who have tried but lost who have paid the cost in this
battle to win, to gain
In honor of women and men
Who will again ask again if their loan is approved
In honor of the homeless who have no shoes
To the grandmothers up late nights praying who will lose
In honor of the children who have their mother's last name
In honor of the warriors who came before
who must watch this country die once more
In honor of the love that never lived
due to the man's inability to give
In honor of the victims of storms
that came
and went
and stole lives and jobs and households and rent
In honor of the many people disrespected by authorities
Have them know the authority represents no majority
In honor of the mother, the father searching for work
Each day of a no pay builds more stress, more hurt
In honor of You who still reads and believes that
education is the key and only the open eye sees
In honor of peace, still a reachable reality, in honor of Joy, a gift within
In honor of our youth, future women and men
In honor of this day, the present moment
In honor of the knowledge
it took to see; if we want change, Change begins with We.
-Sun
