Juneteenth - to celebrate the winds of change,
Usurping persecution, cruel and rife ...
No privilege allowed can e'er exchange
Each right that is endowed a human life.
Thus, as we raise our spirits to rejoice,
Enjoying, sweet, the liberties we know,
Every day reminds us, with hate's voice,
Now, as then, we have so far to go ...
Today we will remember, 'midst our fun,
How as a race, we need to stand ... as ONE.
