Injustice is served

Black lives matterAll lives matterBoth are true, but who's killing who? Not just murderSilent murderOf hopes, dreams, crushed by circumstance. From povertyMore povertyThe cycle pulls people back in. Arrived as slavesRemained as slavesTo blind, suppressive ignorance.  I'm not afraidHe is afraidWhy should I have this privilege? Why do you haveWhy do I haveThe power to strip away life? Serve and protectWho will protectWhen the protector makes danger? We're made equalWe are equalIn the eyes of the Supreme Judge. Wake up AmericaStand up AmericaNo more brothers, fathers, should die. Black lives matterAll lives matterBoth are true, but who's killing who.
