Why do we ignore all these spoken words?
tell us as
Now I, myself, have spit one or two verse
and I need to let you know I will be heard.*
You call for a social media blackout and
there they sit thinking, " How absurd!"
But when it comes down to it
what do you do when there is
no reaction* to your tear-filled words?
Is it because we have adapted to being so passive,
when there's ****, murders, lynchings, and theft
we just take it in passing?
Or is it because we can look the other way,
when the hands of a white man
take the life of a different ethnicity away?
Is it in relation to power?
We close our eyes
But where is the action
for justice in this final hour?
What is it that you do to help this land?
Other than observe and comment snidely
on your fellow man?
It is no tragedy for a loss of life?
While you ponder your "newsfeed"
via social media
via your Iphone
via your wifi
Consider the point when you lost touch with real life.
PUT DOWN YOUR CELL PHONES.
COMBINE FORCES, WE ARE THE ONES WITH POWER.
let us use our love for one another.
let us try and save each other.
