Our Lives Matter

surrounded by white chalk,
yellow caution tape,
and three officers with black boots

I hear chants of pain,
the cries of outrage,
then I began to feel the warm tears pour from my mom’s face.

A local broadcast tells a story to boost its views
as the officers will plead its procedure
the community will see another life taken too soon,

another black life under twenty-five
but to say my life mattered would make me a racist too,

so tell me how does it feel,
knowing the victim’s description is similar to you ?
if I move the wrong way I give the man every reason to shoot ?
how would you feel to see your child plastered on the news ?

I just want peace and justice
for all my brothers and sisters wrongly accused
all of the families that suffered loses,
and each fist still fighting for the truth.


#wethepeople  …because I don’t want you to forget

                                       …because their lives mattered

                                                …because enough is enough!!!!

Can I say how proud I am of this production. Pay attention to the details when you watch. No straight hair, nappy hair of all colors/textures, black women of all shades. Black relationships of all kinds. Black actresses/dancers. Most importantly, the statement that Black women are the most attacked and under appreciated people in the world. Can I say Black feminism or what?
