Black lives matter
Dishonor their heritage
Destroy their legacy
Turn them into slaves
Steal their culture
Kill us without remorse
Capture their lands
No more black kings and queens
But we are kings and queens
They poke and prodded us.
Whipped and lashed out at us
Segregated us after granting us "freedom"
FREEDOM we had to fight for
Some of us
With our last breath
They didn't love us
They don't see our beautiful souls
Only our melaninated skin
The dark shades they choose to look upon in disgust
Like God made a mistake in creating US
I'm poised and graceful.
A Blooming representation that my people are powerful
We will rise from the fragments they disintegrated us into
We hold the POWER and we're taking black what RIGHTFULLY belongs to us.
We are not broken
We are not divided.
Together we stand to frame our fragments
History, CULTURE,soul, love, peace in this grand sewn tapestry.
Fight with us or get out of our way.
Be the change you want to see.
