Justice Now.

They call for blood

They want heads to roll

They seek redemption

For a lost soul


A brisk walk in the moonlight

A lone teen, here for what purpose?

A night guard watching and waiting

Trying to do his service.


A struggle in the dark

Where blood is shed

A shot in the night, fatal

An entire community bled


Everyone is up in arms

Can’t let this man walk free

He meant to kill for color

No need to hear his plea


A child was lost

That’s all that matters

Can’t let him go

Forget if his life will shatter


Pain is real, pain is evident

Change the law if you have must

In order to make the pain go away

In God, we trust.
