2 score and 6 years ago,
One man tried to make a difference
He told the community that
"I have a Dream"
They responded by shooting him.
Just last year a boy in a hood
Suffered the same fate as Doctor King
When a Floridian neighborhood watch
deemed him unsafe.
The only thing these victims had in common
Was the blackness of their skin
But what's in the outside
Isn't always on the inside.
The ignorance and prejudice
Turned their hearts and souls
Darker than a human being's
Heart and soul should be.
I'm sorry that we haven't realized
That Mike Brown might have lived
If we stopped seeing color
And started seeing equality.
