They brought their guns

 We bring our voices

They choose violence

We tried to make better choices

But Peace was never

meakness

or weakness

and if anything this week has

shown

is a people who have been 

wronged

who’s oppression has been far too many years

prolonged

who’ve been made to feel like they’ve never 

belonged

And been told

“Be quiet”,

“You’re too sensitive”,

“Just play along”

Are sick and tired of their

excuses

And how they used us

And how they flung their abuses

The ones they never realized brought the match to the fuses

And BOOM 

Go the bombs with the privilege they

packed

And the pedestal they sat on is showing it’s

cracked

So despite what they and their base have

believed

what they think they did to us, what they think they’ve

achieved

They’re about to see a rising of which they never

conceived

All because they 

just

didn’t

listen 

when all we said was

“I cant breathe… please stop”
