Angels Weep

Grieving

Not one of us is free
Until all of us are free

We hide behind our laws
Our badges
Our guns
Our politics
Our fears

We hide behind
What we have convinced our hearts to believe
About those with whom we share this earth
Yet our souls know the truth

That all people bear the light inside
While only some wear the chains of inequity
Only some taste what they believe is real freedom
And even they are often fooled

For power does not equal freedom
Nor does an unholy clinging to the idea
That only some are worthy

Not one of us is free
Until all of us are free
And the angels weep
