We are walking with shackles
on our exposed dreams of this world.
There can be a time when we can be free.
There will be a time
when we come out our caves
just to hold each other freely
regardless of looking eyes.
When we come to an understanding
that with all our differences
we are the same as human beings.
All we have to do is listen and embrace.
When a young man can play
in a park with whoever they wish.
When a little lady can keep
her faith and innocence
without adult corruption.
When no one dies
due to race or religion
or living in fear
of who we are,
then the world will be would be free.
