Invisible Chains

Fri, 09/04/2020 - 16:58 -- kdaniel

Someone once told me that we were free,

But all I see is invisible chains. 

Held down by racism, injustice, and WAR!

Police Brutality has taken my brothers and sisters,

Now!;they lay in wait of Gods Judgement....

Yesterday I mourned, Today I cried, and Tomorrow I will PRAY!!!!!

For we have lived with INVISIBLE CHAINS for a LIFETIME...

I have found that there is no diversity in COLOR!

For my collegues have told me that I am different,

because the Lord has made me BROWN.

My soul  has heard the voices of my ancestors;

as they lay in the bottom of the ocean...

Unable to understand the suffering of a CULTURE!


Held down by the INVISIBLE CHAINS as they cut off my BROTHERS oxygen

Unable to BREATHE, as we beg for MERCY!

My IDENTITY mistaken for a THUG; so they can KILL ME

Laying in the street full of BULLET WOUNDS; 

while my blood paints the streets RED...

Unable to tell the difference in REALITY;

while being held down by INVISIBLE CHAINS!!!
