Black Lives DO Matter

Black Power

I want to climb on a tower

I want the whole world to hear

This is what I fear

Is this what the world has come to?

Genocide because of a persons color

Everything happens in a blur

One breath

One bullet

One gun

One trigger 

Two people

Each of a different color

Heartbroken mothers

Heartbroken fathers

My baby

No justice

No peace

We will not rest

We will not be silenced

WE WILL BE HEARD

WE WILL SHOUT

Until the whole world knows 

BLACK LIVES DO MATTER
