A dream deferred ( aprayer for non violence)

A Dream Deferred ( A Prayer For Non Violence) (click for song)
was inspired when I read a music history book which said "Madrigals were songs sung by minstrells often about societies problems and were often sad".I thought of our racial division and misunderstandings and this song came about. 
A Dream Deferred ( A Prayer For Non Violence)
Left and right, black and white dream deferred sleeping
Stop the fight, see the light my guitar is weeping
Oh sweet Lord we cant afford another night of grieiving
Where's the fruit, within in the root of those that are deceiving
Still I'm sad, makes me mad, wher is hope growing
We must go on, we must stay strong till mercies overflowing
