I wasn't gonna speak on this and
be another cliche white guy
speaking out of line
as if I could ever relate to our
and I would never assume to
make light of current happenings.
However it affects me
I'm a living breathing
Person that has even
served blindly the lies
of this nation.
George I never knew you but
I now for the purpose of this
heart felt piece
place myself in your very skin,
your final thoughts,
and your very vision,
The heaviness of your final breath
the fear you must of felt as it
became more of a
to remove the knee please.
(I feel tightness in my chest as my breathing becomes rapid and tears flood my eyes
this must be empathy.)
Tears that blurred the final visions,
as your eyes slit shut like
I the poet am torn what emotion
I should be pulled towards
sadness or outrage that
a people regardless their differences
could stand by and watch
hurt another human being,
When the fuck
will we stop the recording
To help the dying live???
The outrage that the
law enforcement can't uphold the
laws their supposed to be enforcing.
They used to hide the fact that
they were so hateful
now the cats out of the bag
out in the open and ever so blatant.
How long are a people
supposed to be patient,
How many hundreds of years
Should a people be kept waiting
Not for reparations but
just for equal treatment?
A sequel to the fifties and sixties,
A prequel to something evil
that always existed,
Sam Cooke said Change Gonna Come
and he was right temporarily but I suppose its in our nature to repeat the
stupid shit that we did in the past like undisciplined kids.
