This is a poem I wrote in 2004.
I truly believe we are getting closer to equality.
Hurray for Obama!

Laden with hard stones
lies the road of injustice
and it is pained by man's fever
to hurt their face of color

They are like you
though some do not see
through to their soul
or inside their roots
where burdens were carried
and crosses were left behind
by their dead

If we could only surpass
the iniquities of some
and the hard-core hatred of others
then they shall truly be free
like Lincoln's promise

Man's inhumanity to man.
Will it ever end? The picture says it all.
Well done.

The only true understanding comes from experience, and we can't see through each others eyes, let alone feel each others pain, Unless we reach out to each other regardless of our beliefs and offer our comfort, we will never find true freedom, we will never know peace,and we will never feel that we are equal.

This poem ignited the dynamo of justice of my mind.
I enjoyed reading "The Road to Equality".

Justice is "The Road to Equality".

Very sensitive discussion and another question is raised: Where is the freeman land, which human-social branch is free? Women call their Spouses, “HUSBAND”, when they are co-owners-PARTNERS. They do that beacuse they are not feeling or having freedom. That was a title given by the slave masters of the Priesthood Lineage.

Healthy Creative life, Poet!

Thank Your for posting this "The Road to Equality".

Oh this is a unique write and a unique look at a savage world that I agree is still alive in a lot of places today.

I learn't not to only throw money at homeless, but to stop talk listen, and help them understand the help they are entitled to.
Prejudice is the bane of our society..
