Colourful and Proud

Let's talk about Black Lives Matter...

It's our mistake; we're too busy being fake.

BLM started in 2013 against police brutality,

An attempt to search for equality.

So why did it take the lives of numerous innocents to reignite?

Why did it take seven shots to get up and fight?

400 years of oppression,

400 years of black lives in depression.

11 year old girls waking up everyday to think,

"When I grow up, I want to be alive."

Why should colour be a barrier to thrive?!

It's mine,

It's yours,

It's our mistake;

We're too busy being fake.

Let's sort ourselves out, for God's sake!
