Words used to freely, no compassion
When lives are at stake
In a world full of oppression
Screams ring out loudly in the streets
Slaughters happen and get excused
They echo in my sullen heart
As society divides unpeacefully
Clean slates, not existent
No freedom of speech, censored
No right to live, murdered
Say their names and stand up!
Humans judged by cultures, prejudice
Legal jargon and corruption
Conceals the truth in a system broken
Or is it fractured at all?
White privilege gains one victory after another
Pivotal racism becomes opaque; apparent
Broken justice, broken country
Mass incarceration; the new slavery
Strip their names, take their lives
Take their pride and give numbers, ludicrous!
All for financial gain; monopolies and scandal
Who will stop the hate?
Who will fix the wreckage?
What’s your answer?
Humanity aborted; destruction…eminent…
