It's crazy to know we live in a world where people are constantly being mentally and physically put under arrest
A government built with the hopes of helping a system that is so clearly oppressed
They wonder why there are so many suicides and death threats
Woman still marching in the streets for equality
Hoping one day to be treated as we should be
Creators of life
Mothers of nature
Hiding our bodies
Because you can't seem to hide your vulgar thoughts
As if that is the way you were taught
Black individuals getting killed for problems that go back centuries
Walking through the street
Yelling "I have a dream" and it does not involve being killed by the age of 15
Deep rooted flaws that have made a way into and throughout OUR history
President yelling " make America great again"
It has never been great for my people
Martin Luther King died in 1968 and we are still here reciting " I have a dream"
Yet it all seems to go unseen
Like the crimes committed against individuals who look just like me
They knew to make the people weak it was all a matter
Of how to divide and deplete
Anything that might help us escape that unattained dream that we seek.
