Bodies of the innocent lying in the streets.
Left for dead.
Another day. Another hashtag.
Cities left in ruins.
Kings and Queens stripped of their crowns.
Lives lost for nothing.
Innocence tarnished by false narratives.
Voices of the outraged go unheard.
Everyday battles of peoples black and brown.
Still we fight.
Marching for a true freedom.
A revolution begins.
Together we stand.
Today we want change.
Equality is due justice.
Restless although the fight.
Still, even still, we come together for what’s right.
