the Injustice death from a man of “justice”.
ur Pleading, “I can’t Breathe” turns ICE
COLD like that POLICEman’s heart!
But the died dance in their grave
ur Spirit is always with us. FOREVER
OUR VOICES shall not go Silent. NEVER!

It's hard when you're not heard
I can't breathe, mama
Your shouts are in the dirt
I can't breathe, mama
A tear falls down your cheek
I can't breathe, mama
Your strong voice now is weak
I can't breathe…

My heart did cry for you
I can't breathe, mama
Tell me what to do
I can't breathe, mama
I want you to be heard
I can't breathe, mama
Your death was so absurd
I can't breathe…

The air is filled with flowers
I hear your name is chanted
We hear your voice in ours
We can't let this be slanted

We can't just turn back time
This future won't be bright
If we don't stop  this crime
If we don't shed  the  light

With peace in our hearts
As we look around the brave
With us, the future starts
New change we shall engrave!

The whole world hears your voice
They all urge you to breathe
Our hearts seek better choice
No one should feel beneath!

Remember when we burned
down the federal fences
and let a black family in
a white house built by slaves -

man, the fire was hot
and the smoke smelled like freedom -

but that was then, and here we are
not so much later, the rails are made
of iron like the fists of a dictator -

the smoke burns my eyes, man -
and now - I can’t breathe.

Don't ask me if I'm okay
Because I am not
I'm lucky enough to breathe,
While so many cannot.

The world is one

Problems don’t get noticed
Until they escalate

Racism doesn’t get shown in the news because it’s bad for the ,,right” people

People who cause trouble often think their selves are more important

They may have more power
But that doesn’t give anybody the right to be racist

The world is one
We should fight together
Skin colour doesn’t matter

People should see more than just the person in the mirror which is the right one for them

The world isn’t equal

But the people should be treated equal

equALLity for the world
Today, we fight many battles.
How has it gone so far?
Injustices rule;
Stand up for yourself, risk death.

We gain nothing through violence.
Our dignity is tainted.
Random acts of goodness overshadowed.
Living becomes indefinable.
Death is felt with the warmth of blood.

“I was attacked.”
Suffering being witnessed and felt.

“I barely survived.”
Now people need to watch their backs.
Fury prowls the streets,
Until justice is served.
Remember when we used to be free.
“I arrived home safely.”
A "Good Morning" text is now feared.
Today it can be exactly what it is.
In a few days, it's a death notification.
Now we need to fight together;
Great powers require big forces.

Many will fall. And
Eventually we will all rise.

THIS WORLD IS INFURIATING ME

- The Sentence
Sienna May 28
America, the land of the free
But not for you
And not for me.
America, where you can dream
In a cell all alone
Because they took the key.
America, the best country
Established with pain
From brown bodies.
America, where you can be
Anything you want
Except a minority.
America, accepting of all
Except the feathered chiefs
Who once stood tall.
America, where you get a call
To hear your black brother
Was seen as nothing at all.
America, where there’s free speech
To protest the Asians
Who are blamed for the heat.
America, where there’s guns and bombs
To get revenge on the “terrorists”
Who were sobbing to Allah.
America, a true mixing ***
And what a place
For children to be shot.

I can’t breathe ...
it’s only cigarettes
that’s all, I know
they bad for you
Bro, your lungs, your
heart, I’m telling
you, but not as bad
as selling them
on the streets of NYC
like a chokehold
you know
I can’t breathe...
RIP, Eric Garner: July 17, 2014.

what would you do
if you breath was stolen
and not in a good way?

what would your last words be
if a gun was against your head
and you couldn't breathe?

what would you say
before the water went into your lungs
and you only had seconds to live?

what would you do
what would you say
if you couldn't breathe anymore?

if the air became poison
and you couldn't breathe
all you could do was watch your family
fall one by one?
