When Time Marches On

I wonder.
When time change will we change with it
Or will time march on without us.
Leaving us behind to repeat the same old tired
and sad failures of the past.

When time marches on.
I wonder will there be some that will still call
me boy.
Just be cause of the color of my skin

when times marches on
Will there still be two Americas.
One black, and one white still separate
and unequal.

when time marches on.
Will we all march to the same drum beat of one
nation under God.
With liberty and justice for all.

when time marches on.
Will we all march in step for the greater
good of all mankind.
Or still march out of step to the destruction of all.
