You nor I

  

    You nor I 

 

 

Neither You nor I will live to see that wonderful time 

When the world will live without a crime 

Neither you nor I will live to hear the victory cry 

Of freedom before one of us will die 

Neither you nor I will live to feel the keys to our chain 

Before we reveal the world our pain 

Neither you nor I will live to smell the air of our land 

When we all march southward hand in hand 

Neither you nor I will live to taste the cold bitter tear 

Of those who mourned our pain and or fear

    Such true words Katherine but we must not give up hope and do the best we can for those around us.
