Our rights
     Come not from the will of the state;
The state's rights
     Come from the will of people;
And our rights
     Come from the will of God.

Yet here on earth,
God's work is done by people,
So we come before these people,
Asking that our rights be respected,
     Not rejected;
Asking for empathy,
     Not sympathy;
Asking for common sense,
     Not rulebook sense;
Asking for moral leadership,
     Not dictatorship;
Asking for fairness,
     Not favors;
Asking for nondiscriminatory treatment,
     Not special treatment;
Asking for facilitation,
     Not exemption
     Nor exception;
Asking for equal opportunity
     Meaning equitable opportunity,
     Not extra opportunity;
Asking for a level playing field,
     Not a better playing field
     Nor a battlefield;
Asking for righteousness,
     Not kindness
     Nor such maliciousness;
And most of all,
Asking for full service,
     Not lip service,
In America's most basic commitment and promise
To provide liberty, justice, and equity for all people.

Is this too much for anyone to ask?
