the liberty we value – v2

no sense of justice
in this path of our life
one people, one nation
one voice should rise
to right the imbalance
history on our side

the liberty we value
the happiness we seek
a dream of this nation
not in this life, this time,
if a shrinking few has very much
and a growing  many are without
