a divided people

lets get back to reality

we have this mantality

but we have no humanity

full of complete insanity

war and competition

is that what it gotta be?

mahatma said "be the change you wanna see in the world"

are we willing to change ourselves? afraid we might fall? if we stand together,

put aside our differentences and stand tall

we have the..black lives matter,

but aint enough of us black folks making our lives matter

put down the guns, get rid of the violence, but dont stand in silence

silence is killing, be loud be proud, keep beliveing


thats a crime
