When I look up at the sky
I see the future generations
Listening to music that has no interpretation,
Violence and poverty across the nation.
Could this future generation be the one who pushes us through
From this endless cycle of oppression
As well as society’s restrictions on self-expression
Where everyone can be truly equal like they promised in the Constitution?
Standing up for myself like Rosa Parks did and start a revolution
To be able to accomplish my dreams like Dr. King.
The American Dream is what gives us motivation
So that our children have a good education
To not be ashamed of where they come from
Not being labeled for what we choose to be
To say “Yeah, we are American” without hesitation
Creating a better tomorrow in reality not just in our imagination.
