All lives MATTER???

Dys go by and agin on the news you here it.

Rumpumpum man down, shot by the gun of who should have protected him.

There's no protection if your color is dark like chocolate or glowing like Honey.

Blacks, Asians, Africans and Hispanics are all threatened for what? Why?

Because they don't care, they won't care, and all we do is say ALL LIVES MATTER.

 

Months on and on more bodies in a church for a funeral then to praise God.

Because now we tried fighting back but the government always has more.

More guns, more violence, I'm rambling because there's silence and I can't take it.

Why should we have to fight each other to prove a point? Why is it guns are always the answer.

I can't walk to school without fearing I'll get shot down by the police or attacked and raped by someone sick.

I'm scared of my home, the land of the free but what freedom is there if there's none for you and me.

 

Back before we had hatred and anger we had salvation and joy. People wanted to come to America.

Oh boy, now they hope we can escape, they had dreams for this place and weve let them down. 

There's no one to blame but ourselves and yes this sounds crazy and unorganized but do is our world so is our minds.

Teenagers feel like their future is at stake, most days we stop caring and just want to fly away.

Away from the danger, away from our past our present and our future. The future we can't control.

What do we do when our president wants us gone and it was his ancestors that forced ours here in the first place.

 

I'm stopping now because t mind is going to face for my hands to type but I want to leave you with one last bit of advice.

 

DONT SAY ALL LIVES MATTER THEN GET MADE ATTHE WHITE MEN AND TREAT THEM WRONG. IF ALL LIVES MATTER SHOW IT AND BE PROUD AND STRONG.

Or dont it's up to you, besides I'm just a teenage black girl from the ghetto,what do I know? Just know i refuse to live in a world where all lives don't matter, and the minority is killed for it.

This poem is about: 
Our world
