    These are the times
    The best of times
    Time for change
    Time for reorganization
    Time for black people
    To change their situation

    It is our time
    We must make it so
    137 years
    Since they let us go
    All this time
    In the back of the line
    Now is the time
    For us to shine

    Time for 30 million *****
    To get up at once
    Time to move together
    Form a strong black line
    Those on CPT
    Will be left behind

    It’s time for me
    It’s time for you
    Our children are watching
    It’s time for us to follow through

    thank you for the motivation. I will try harder to follow through with the things I know I should do.
