Be Not Afraid To Fight The Right Fights

Be not afraid
To fight the right fights
The hate, the hatred
To regain your rights
To end bigotry, racism
Fascism and nepotism.

Be brave
Like a heroic slave
Who is not afraid
To be whipped, raped
By an inhuman master
By a greedy slave owner.

Be not afraid
To fight for the weak
The underprivileged
Every single week
Every time
They’re victim of a crime.

Be not afraid to fight
The right fights
Every time you’re right
When your rights
Are denied and violated
When you’re humiliated.

You’re not a poor slave
You’re from no enclave
You’re from here
You belong to every tier
Of this picturesque landscape
That no eyes can escape.

Be not afraid
To dream, to dare
To fight hard and fair
Against the hatred
The bigots
And the nuts.
