Children are crying,
The innocent are dying.
People are shooting, killing, and lying.
This drug epidemic is taking authority,
Heroin is a killer, yet it’s still a priority.
Why are we allowing racism to still exist?
People’s response to everything, is talking with their fists.
When did violence become the answer and love become the crime?
Since when is the guilty no longer made to do time?
Why is racism still in existence?
We’re at war with ourselves, because the justice system is so inconsistent.
Open your eyes to the issues at hand,
Are we just going to sit back without taking a stand?
My heart breaks for this country, my eyes cry for our future,
How can we live in a world full of torture?
Until we come together and act as one,
Until issues can be solved without using a gun;
Until you and I aren’t seen as color,
Until we can all learn to love one another;
We can hope and plead and pray for change,
But as long as we allow it, this world will forever be the same.
