Black, White, Asian, race or any color
We're no different nor better than all or each other
We are all sisters and brothers
Not by blood nor by skin
But by the spirit that is within
Those who were shot, their life is running thin
Yet they are those with the "color" on their skin
We need to stop the violence and to allow equality in
Taring each other down and killing all around
Hearing gunshots is a sudden and normal sound
Shootings on the left
Dead bodies on the right
Got me running around and hearing my heart pound
Hearing on the news:
" A young black boy, shot dead and was found"
" A white female girl, dead body was buried in the ground"
" An asian kid was kidnapped, without anybody hearing a sound"
Screaming and hollering, "Give us freedom, equal rights, and equality now!"
With all this chaos, corruption, and power
We say we want freedom, rights, and equality for every minute and every hour
People say they want it now
But in my head I’m thinking “How?!”
If our heads are too deep and yet we are drowning....
Drowning too deep of every second, to a minute, then within every hour.....
Drowning in our silence, without any voice nor no power
“Black lives matter!”
“White lives matter!”
“Asian lives matter!”
Yet we need to chatter:
" That Equality matters!"
