Return to Grade 7


By !Nicholas S.

Equality is like a fragile bird
when it does not chirp it will not be heard
so dont stay quiet when you know something is not right
stand up and fight for the right
equality does not come easy
but dont stand around feeling the breezee
speak up for these civil rights
but dont go out and start a fight
stay truthful when this statement is heard non-violence is the only way for your voice to be heard
so remember this when your equality is taken
who ever took your equality is sadly mistaken
so stay truthful to your moral's
and dont start a big quarrel
try to talk about your civil rights
and for eduality's sake dont start a fight
