the color of my skin

racism

a violation
of the right to e q u a l i t y

in other words

the color of our skin

determines our lifestyle

 

skin is skin

but we are different

the past 

has stood with our 

future

we still are treated unfairly

 

we continue to be 

s                    eperated

from society

we continue to be

threatened for our lives 

we continue to be 

AFRAID

 

get shot

fought

and locked

as easy as

can be & reasons that cannot be 

reasoned

 

we are one

and we matter

justice for all 

and all for justice 

for the rest of our

long lived lives
