Plea for Forgiveness
Written by: MARK BRINE

I was driving down the road, the other day
Coming to a red light I stopped there to wait
When I overheard through my window a man in a crowd
Screamin’ “BLACK POWER” with such anger and hate

Sitting there in my sadness my mind drifted back
To the sixties ‘n how I marched and how I truly believed in all that
Yes, that men are equal and universal Brothers in one
Like Jesus once taught us to forgive and to love

But it seems like no matter how hard that we try
t’ make up for wrongs we just can’t let ‘em die
Innately we’re all trapped in our self serving greed
For power and money so no one is free

Yeah, its us against them and them against us
There ain’t hardly no one in this world you can trust
Except for dear God so we put our belief
in Him ‘n ignore his true road to peace

Yeah, its white against black and poor against rich
Muslims against Jews, Protestants and Cath’lics
Yeah, everyone’s fightin’ too self-righteous to see
That it ain’t good for nothing except more misery

What a sad world it is and it just breaks my heart
How mankind is so hell-bent on bein’ apart
When the answers so simple ‘n in the words of Our Lord
Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called
The children of God
