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.

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...
I changed my mind. I'm not doing it anymore. I don't need to add anything else to everything that's drowning me. Two weeks would be hell And I don't think it will make me happy. I just won't be happy period. There's not much I can do about that.
