Sheila White : Requiem for Freedom

Requiem for Freedom

God made me white, but this I must not say,
Such words are taboo in the world today.
God made him brown, but this I must not see,
My country does not expect this of me.

God made him black, but this I must deny,
Must I in glorious gods name, tell a lie.
White, brown, black or yellow races,
Were each made by God’s Divine Graces.

God made us all, this I know is true,
God gave me strength to keep me true to you.
Though politicians rave and yell
Their grievance,
To my God I owe
My first allegiance.
