|America: Liberty and justice
A bit afraid.
people are constantly abused.
Misused, Left for dead.
It’s like they manufacture
lead with us in mind
Like the bullets are designed
to travel in one direction
programmed to pierce brown skin.
Who cares about the vigils
We never stopped marching
We never silenced the protests
But they’re just gonna do it again
There is no right way to live
when you reside in this skin.
Avoidance aint never been enough
Denial does not grant protection
With my bible to my chest
& prayer as a bulletproof vest
I cry out, Oh Lord! Please, help me past this test.
No more black lives minimized to a hashtag
No more promising futures met with a body bag
No more systematic oppression
No more sitting back and doing a whole lot of nothing
I don’t know how, I don’t know what…
but I’m gonna do something.
