All I Have To Say about Ferguson

is that I am not a cop with a badge and a gun

tasked to serve and protect

 

nor am I a black father or mother or brother

grieving over lost family or friend

 

nor am I a part of a community where

the line between black and white

 

are faded and not completely erased

but I am human

 

and I don’t need to be a cop, or be black,

or be part of a divided community

 

to know that there is something terribly wrong.
