    To Make it Through Each Day

    We the people with darker skin
    Has long the burden of prejudice bared
    As our hurt and pain we’ve kept within
    Pain more often than not unshared

    We have faced the sickness of bigotry
    Fighting diligently to find a cure
    Challenging a system that is unequivocally
    Racially bias to it’s very core

    We have watched innocent blood
    Spilled on segregation’s lily- white streets
    As daily we stand the tide of bigotry’s flood
    But refuse to concede to defeat

    We have watched our creativity stifled
    By rules of double standardization
    And stood helpless as with our civil rights they trifled
    With a decree of reverse discrimination

    Tell me how in the world can a minority
    Under the thumb of the status-quo
    In a nation run by a white majority
    Discriminate, I’d truly like to know

    Yet we the people of darker skin
    Somehow manage to find a way
    Through faith in God and the will to win
    Manage to make it through each day
