I am as loyal as a dog.
I will be by your side until the end,
Quick to forgive,
Even when ill-treated.

But be warned,
I am as friendly as a closed door,
When you treat people with disdain
Because of the colour of their skin.

I am the tenacious road to freedom.
Always seeking to liberate the mind;
To live life on my own terms;
And refusing to give up on our shared potential.
