Change, yes we can

To life and God, my quest again, I shall bow to thee.
Be not molded the same, nor alike to play the same games.

Tolerance is all we need, for thou art gave all eyes to see.
Thy heart bleed thy river red, as thy knife pain always feel the same.

Our knowledge thirst the same, thy will to succeed and plant thy seeds.
To be home with thou in-kind, not to be judged or cast out for our differences.

Know thy neighbor has their own right to be and shall always be in harmony.
Thou shall bow, respect and give thy space, no need to change thy grace.

Tolerance shall be thy guide, thy inspiration, to lead our given path.
No need to change thee, for thou do this same thing for me.

Together in tolerance we will take thy Earthly stand.
The change shall be thy will, and change will be thy attitude, thy gratitude.

For the safety and the sake of all man, together we must work it out.
To build a more humble society, built in peace and prosperity, yes we can!

In memory of Martin Luther King Jr. and in
Honor of our new President Barrack Obama
