I lightweight Feel Kinda Salty

I lightweight felt kinda salty,
When they assassinated Medgar Evans and Martin Luther King,
Killing the power but not the dream!
I lightweight felt kinda salty,
That it took a devilish plan of infiltrating other lands,
For the world to recognize that Obama is the man.
I lightweight felt kinda salty,
When they robbed our land of riches and Kings,
Had us build their country but tried to exclude us from history.
I lightweight feel kinda salty,
That the six o’clock broadcast always displays the demise of our men,
But never reports when our children are missing!
I lightweight feel kinda salty,
That in the most powerful country in the world,
People are still sleeping in the streets,
Our food supply is poisoned,
There are children who need healthcare,
The rich keeping getting richer and,
That some are too ignorant to care.
That knowledge is divided by the places that you live,
That even the churches are reluctant to give.
I lightweight feel kinda salty,
That my job is to ascertain if children are safe,
That the workload is heavy, and children are abused in every race.
That every night there is no end in sight,
The secret to success, the prayers at night.
I lightweight feel kinda salty,
That I don’t have the answers to the problems that plague my soul,
I don’t have enough resources to conquer my goals.
Tomorrow will bring more children that cry,
More governments that lie,
More Kings that die,
History not told,
Stolen fortunes and the less fortunate.
Grieving all the money I spent, on the labels and the fables of the market place.
What can change the bitterness in my mouth?
This salty mood that I am talking about,
Religion only brings toleration,
Even though segregation is not written on the signs,
It still exist in peoples minds.
Even though are country claims to be free,  
Real freedom still appears as dream, yet to be lived and,
I lightweight feel kinda salty.
