W = B
Author: Maranda Berkley
We'll never live long enough
For the whites and blacks to see
Both of them are equal
Both are free
Everyone holds grudges
But they need to forgive and withhold
All the harsh words and gunshots
News stories told
What if there was no hate in the world?
No crime for the newscasters to relay
What would they tell the communities?
Would the shows even stay?
Someday we may forgive
But forgetting may be out of the question
Perhaps we'll here "I love you's" instead of hate words
As true confessions
