A Poem on Equality

The Road Ahead
© 2014  Syneeda Penland

I will keep my eyes on the prize,
As songs of freedom
Ring through the skies.
Hopes of days gone by,
A new generation
We will seed and multiply.

It is my hopes and dreams
That Freedom will one day bring
New beginnings - days of old gone by,
As I illuminate your spirit
From the Heavenly sky.

Don’t be afraid to dream,
To see the road ahead,
To walk this path of freedom
Is nothing to dread.

Let go of the shackles
And hold your head high,
Look beyond the masses
And raise your head to the sky.

Dare you to dream,
To think on your own,
Allow your mind to soar to new heights;
No longer will it roam.

For I had a dream
That one day we will unite,
To allow our eyes to see beyond
The flesh, yet the spirit takes flight.

When the soul is hollow
It’s just an empty shell,
Joining misery in its company
To a live a life in hell;
From the highest mountain top,
I will always dwell.
