Why is there more hatred than love
Why do I not see help from above
Why are we viewed as despicable punks
Why do they only put us in cuffs?
Why do I see a racial divide
Why are we fighting all of the time
Why can't we unify within a confine
Why are we searching but never can we find?
Why don't they see men in despair
Why are our problems beyond repair
Why are they killing, it isn't fair
Why do you allow it mayor?
Why is injustice a theme in our home
Why is depression prominent when alone
Why can we not get off of our phone
Why are humans emotionless drones?
I am a human who can't see an answer
Our hatred is spreading at alarming rates like cancer
Our existence should be free like a prancer
And exquisite and artistic like a ballet dancer.
The first four stanzas were a call for help
Because the response is in ourself
We must accept that we are a whelp
That is learning to live in harmony with Kelp.
In order to change, you must look in the mirror
You will then see a little glimmer
It's hope manifesting in your inner
Heart cause you envision yourself as a winner.
In our country they make it seem like black and white
Because they want us to always fight
When together our power and might
Can vanquish the burning light.
The light is racism it burns inside
Deray Mckesson said it before a closed eye
And that is why this is so alive
Because we all have ego and pride.
So let me end this with some hope
The truth will cleanse like soap
And water will be truthful to folk
And us chicken will not poison the yolk.
