UNREST

I woke up today,
Woke,
Hardly any words,
Needed to be spoken,
The world was active,
The work is being done,
Strangely,
My mind was not at ease,
For I am smart enough to know,
Reality is not always what it seems,
We must fight,
Change must happen,
I can’t wait for tomorrow,
For today is right in our face,
So why wait?
Protest,
Looting,
Shooting,
Recruiting,
I am not in the mood,
I need to see documents,
I need to see new laws,
Now,
I am not with the shits,
I need something legit,
Pain been on my mind,
I need to get something off my chest,
Your knee is on my neck,
I kneel to make things correct,
Are you here now,
For the clout,
Are you here now,
To open your mouth,
Until them,
I don’t believe everything,
I am seeing,
I am unrested.

BLACK LIVES MATTER vs ALL LIVES MATTER [#POEM]

black lives matter

I thought all lives matter,
Regardless of race,
I guess we all in a race,
To see who will first be erased,
So I stand up for my race, black people,
Because we are all people,
And death is nothing to play with,
So I live my life to the fullest.
