THE ROCK OR THE RIVER?
We live in a world where violence is heavier than ever
We hear more about people getting killed, more than we hear about the weather
Every time I think about it, I kinda go insane
Because here in this world, we play with our lives as if life is a game.
We don’t know when we’re gonna die,
But I know I won’t watch another mother cry
Because her child died
I don’t want to see another riot,
But I also don’t want us to stay quiet.
I want us to fight, but we have to do it right
If we want it go in a certain direction,
We need to get some type of instruction
So we can function
Outside of this messed up junction.
God wouldn’t want this violence
But, He also wouldn’t want us to stay silent
Malcolm said “BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY”
but King wanted us safe; that’s primary.
So gather your groups and put together your troops
Because we aren’t going anywhere.
We want justice: : Fair and square
All of these cases with their facts mistake;
“He had his hands up”, “He reached for his gun”
“He assaulted him:, “He started to run:
So many details, yet justice can’t prevail.
Things have started to happen, but on a much larger scale.
If things are going left and we want them to go right,
Then I believe the only other choice we have left
IS TO FIGHT!
END THIS WAR OF DESTRUCTION AND OBSTRUCTION!
Things will happen for a reason,
BUT THIS IS OUR SEASON!
We must be like rocks,
STRONG and BOLD.
And be like the River
That MOVES and FLOWS
We must also have God
To show us the path we must trod, narrow as it may be
Because in this world, we must be the change we wish to see.
