She Has the Power

America is the land of the free and home of the brave

But individuals have been fighting racial injustice since they were enslaved

From not being able to vote to being allowed to sit with the whites, they thought they were saved

The freedom that America was said to give is what they craved

As time went on, they thought the road of equality was being paved

The only thing that was being paved was their road to the grave

Just like today, African Americans are being innocently killed 

The ones who are said to protect us need a new mentality instilled

America needs to show people that Black Lives Matter and we can only hope that the world will rebuild 

This poem is about: 
My country
Our world
