In the Shadow of Hope


In the shadow of Hope
every bondsman is free,
there is no trade for the profit of greed

In the shadow of Hope
the gay & lesbian know love,
they are not taught to fear Heaven above

In the shadow of Hope
the trans community is equal,
they are accepted as everyday people

In the shadow of Hope
women are not victimized and abused,
they are wise and thoughtful leaders
because they know what it's like to be used

In the shadow of Hope
we all have a right to choose,
and we measure the cost of all that we lose

In the shadow of Hope
there is no need for abortion,
a heartbeat is equal and granted its portion

In the shadow of Hope
families are not held captive,
they are contributors to society
and community-active

In the shadow of Hope
White knows the difference
between wrong & right,
he stands for truth
and upholds the light

In the shadow of Hope
the children of War have become ignorant,
it is a new day and they no longer
fear the different

In the shadow of Hope
love & hate do not relate,
memory of their struggle dissipates

In the shadow of Hope
We the People of these United States,
better ourselves by learning from our mistakes

There is no goal we cannot reach,
when it is love & compassion we strive to teach
There is no horizon beyond our scope,
when we stand together in the shadow of Hope
