Until the Chains are Gone

Until the Chains are Gone

A Poem by Cole

A poem about tolerance


I speak the whispers of tolerance and sound the horn of diversity

Songs of understanding I sing as summons of equality resound

Hand and hand around the globe blind to all but character 

Until the chains are gone and all are free among the world

We play these games of hatred but who is there to win

Surely not the defense and definitely not the offensive

Little Susie hides in the shadows of the closet

Tommy plays a mask of iron

And poor Joanna is really Johnny

Aamir is known as Alan and stays away from others

Carol withholds her faith

and poor Zavier is locked up in his home

Broken hearts and shattered souls

Terrified of the world until the chains are gone
