We choose to live in a world
free from the hardships of unfair justice.
for the right to walk in the streets unafraid
that an officer of the twisted law will harm us.
We see the brutality done to our brothers
And we revolt.
We are not of the same colour of skin,
my siblings and I.
But should that be a barrier between us?
Are we to just look away and pretend
that the hatred and the pain caused by the ones paid to protect us
does not exist?
I am only one person.
But I will make my voice heard.
Colour is not a justification
And those who have the nerve to say
"It was in protection"
are locked away in the past.
Those who think like this are stuck
in the old times of segregation.
We cannot change overnight.
But we can stop the brutality unjustly placed unpon those
who are our family.
