AWAKE

A man he lay in a pool of blood

his dreams and goals all shattered

just because of his color, skin color

his life was taken by six shots.

 

His family mourned for days and months

a Son stolen from them

laid six feet under

Just because of skin color.

 

As innocent as he was

he was portrayed as a threat

because of his dressing

and because of his skin color.

 

It is time for change

to not judge people by color

but by their character, JUSTICE FOR ALL

JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON.

 

As people seek justice

they are portrayed as riots

while police who throw tear gas

are portayed as security.

 

AWAKE my PEOPLE

let's stop the injustice

let's unify

and build AMERICA.
