This hurt and major hate giving us the strength to make it through life
To look at others down the street and feel nothing but fear and caution
We the people want to live in peace
Or seemingly it was all a front just to tell people we are so great in or state of limited mind
America can offer so many things, we plaster over billboards forcing a dream that will never come true
either I’m secretly blind or stupid to even try and believe that is true
We are unknowingly being forced into a cage of the past
those of us who have a voice try and silence us as if we are dogs in need of muzzles
We came so far from slavery far from the past of death and sadness
Now there's more….
Now mixed with anger and hate towards everyone just walking down the street
Widely fuelled rage for more than payback but revenge to all think the past was right
That’s not right it shouldn’t be about color
Our stress of what we once called home that we can no longer survive in
They say we are the criminals...
They say we are the ones of a sinful desire not following the rules of “nature”
THESE ARE THE RULES OF SOCIETY NOT THE WORLD
They were not written in stone like we are supposed to form our life around these words that mean so much to this society
I am a native American gay woman in America
I tear through hatred like a pitbull everyday
Having been forced into the mindset that I have no right to love for the reason that I love a woman
I can’t love because instead in the eyes of society they look in the eyes of sin
WE ARE ALL SINS!
We can’t be owned anymore but we still have problems with ethnicity and sexuality
We are afraid to become who we want to be in the fear of rejection
Taking a step in the outside world,
Seeing the calamity and we still try to face it
We take a stand and fight.
They kill and discriminate then say it’s all for the holiness of the Lord
While the police are out here taking lives
Husbands, children, and wives
We’re supposed to be in unity,
But killing half of our own community
Guns were made to protect but kill at the same time sadly
Now more than blood on a battlefield from wars was spilled
When will the prophecy be fulfilled?
These officers accusations are real
The world is unknown to the wrong in society today
We have no say
The first amendment is nothing more than words written in history
Not to be taken into consideration
WE HAVE RIGHTS ...We scream loud and proud!
To be heard by who though?
We need the court and people around the world in power to hear it
Can you hear us now!!
We are done fighting the wars within our own city limits and farther
We want you!! To hear us!
We are ready to have our freedom that you say we are given as a citizen
Give us freedom…..
Give us peace…..
Give us what this America has to offer…
WITHOUT your force on just the fragile things in our short lives that are already taken
Not only by you but by what you do to others
We are all one
Break us down we will rise
All together we say
STOP THE VIOLENCE!!!
