For all my Black People,
Whose lives got taken for nothing,
For those who were gun downed,
For those who still face racism.
For those who still face discrimination,
Because of their skin color,
Others doing time for actions they didn’t commit,
Blacks who try to get there life together but can’t because of their past.
People like Martin, Rice, Brown, Sterling, and Garner,
Whose souls got snatched, lives got taken away,
It’s too bad that they couldn’t stay,
Others in tears asking God, "Why?"
Blacks who are living in poverty, can’t find jobs,
Maybe because of their skin color we continue to cry.
Blacks who continued to be labeled in disrespectful ways,
Always being criticized and never being Praised,
For those of all skin colors trying their best to stand up for Gun violence,
We will Fight to make sure that BLACK Lives Matter
