Taking a Stand

I stand for the victims of the oppressor.

George Floyd, Tony McDade, Breonna Taylor.

These among a few thousand others.

Condemned, rejected and ostracized.

Murdured and undermined.

A brutal result of the threatened egos of the white supremacists.

The unjustified acts of insensible racists.

Wake up and realize that the wounded and dead deserve better.

Lift up your arms and let’s brave this storm together.

We have voices and platforms to express.

Our actions have the power to transmute this mess.

We cannot sit back and allow another bigoted generation to unfold.

Open your eyes and remove the blindfolds.

We need to end this continuation of institutionalized racism.

Again and again.

These systems of manipulation.



These ongoing cycles are outdated and require a reformation.

We the people, deserve change.

We deserve justice.

To override the corrupted.

Look around, we are on the brink of a revolution.

Do not stop. Do not look away.

Choose to fight and be a part of the solution.
