                  A Dream Deferred ( A Prayer For Non Violence)

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 swet 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 saty strong till mercies overflowing
