*Time for A Change*

Time to change
Dope addicts to drug ill(ness)
Time to stop all hate groups and put into one body of people
Time to give the poor, the sick, the wicked
Decent places to live
Time to stop breaking down walls of faith
And start building
Building respect
Building health
Building love
Building the church (sacred place)
Time to stop judging peoples’ characters on the merit of the pocketbook
It is time to unburden yourself with half-truths
And tell it like it is

- Doretha Smith Davis Nelson (1921-1981)
