Can we Beat the System

Can we beat the system?

Can we beat going into a store and not getting shot down 

Can we beat not getting accused of rape

Can we beat not getting followed home 

Can we beat not getting burned at stake

Can we beat not getting beaten, bruised, and flamed

Can we beat not getting called slurs ever 5 seconds?

The real question shouldnt be can we beat the system

Its Can we beat society

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