The Aftermath? ( What happens next)

The Aftermath? ( What happens next)
June 1/4/5, 2020

What happens next?

After the protesters have grown tired

and WEARY

Then gone

After the FIRES have been put out

After the police have made their

hundreds of ARRESTS

What happens next?

How many of us will be left ?

Do we get to choose our own DEATHS?

Die by a virus or by fighting for our

JUSTCE and FREEDOM

For the survivors

What happens next ?

Will there be REAL change

Or

RETRIBUTION

A thought that both vadicates and

TERRIFIES me

What happens next?!

After Mr. Floyd has been buried and laid

To a peaceful REST

Will the World FINALLY see the

beautiful worth

Of not only of a Black body but also

Black LIFE

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
