A Poem: Now With Clear Eyes I See 

Now, with clear eyes I see
That in the years past.
This cage has set me free

Society tells us how to be
The darker one comes last
Now with clear eyes I see

The holes in our equality
Still no different from the past
This cage has set me free

The gap between you and me
Has become far too vast
Now with clear eyes I see

The beauty of ethnicity
Soiled by the bigot’s gas.
This cage has set me free

Tolerance too much to ask
True equality too big a task
Now with clear eyes I see that
Within this cage we’re far from free.
