Human rights day-Friday Faithfuls

This week for Friday Faithfuls, try to find a song that makes a plea for racial harmony or write a poem about Human Rights, or tell a story about injustice.

I am sharing this poem I wrote in April, 2021 the topic was justice and equality.

➰➰➰

There can be no justice, nor any illusion of justice

If all are not treated equally, without prejudice

“A society that is cruel can survive but not a society which is unjust” 

The Lofty ideals we aspire to would crumble like dust

If our treatment of each and every citizen is not equal 

The law, the rules, the way everyone is treated

Has to be meted our without favor or prejudice

➰➰➰

This is a newer song by Pharrell Williams which conveys the idea of freedom very well.

Pharrell Williams- Freedom

Lyrics;

Hold on to me
Don’t let me go
Who cares what they see?
Who cares what they know?
Your first name is Free
Last name is Dom
We choose to believe
In where we’re from

Man’s red flower
It’s in every living thing
Mind, use your power
Spirit, use your wings
Freedom!
Freedom!
Freedom!
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom

Hold on to me
Don’t let me go
Cheetahs need to eat
Run, antelope
Your first name is King
Last name is Dom
Cause you still believe
In everyone

When a baby first breathes
When night sees sunrise
When the whale hops the sea
When man recognizes us
Freedom!
Freedom!
Freedom!
Freedom
Freedom
Breathe in

We are from heat
The electric wonder
Does it shock you to see
He left us the sun?
Atoms in the air
Organisms in the sea
The sun and, yes, man
Are made of the same things

Freedom!
Freedom!
Freedom!
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom
Freedom

➰➰➰
