What If?

What if the rules were different

Than the ones we know today?

What if our laws amended

Would we think it was okay?

 

What if women couldn’t vote

No voice, no rights, not free?

What if the status quo was still

That blacks were property?

 

What if our reps ignored us

Serving only them and theirs?

What if the laws they drafted

Ignored public affairs?

 

Of course all that’s atrocity but

Forget not we aren’t far removed

From times like those, believe or not

The days when they were truths

 

Remember, friends, our history

It must be understood

We’re all in this, united

We must always fight for good

    1. I think it should be simple, really. Make the right decisions and don’t intentionally do things that adversely affect others.

      Take the righteous path whenever possible. Love others, work hard, and appreciate the life you’re given.

      Perhaps an overly simplified ideaology, but that wouldn’t be the case if we had better sense. The most important thing is to always progress. Moving forward is all we can ask.
