Black Lives Matter

By Bethel Abiy

Black Lives Matter

Being black is not an option but being racism is
Life is not a joke it's more than just a heartbeat
Attacking your brother won't make you any stronger
Crying for your loved ones won't heal your heart faster
Keeping track of the loss of black people through social media is hard but off screen is harder

Love each and every moment of your life cause you might be the next one to die
I thought we get stronger everyday but you are the reason why we are all living in pain
Victim number one is you but somehow you are invisible
Earth is shaking not because it's weak but because you are destroying its strong armies
Stop taking false action because you are causing a huge distraction

Monday to Sunday are the only days I fear and that is because you are so near
As people call you for help you only arrive to kill lives
Time keeps passing by and as that happens racism should have died
Truth doesn't exist as each and every crime is fixed with different lies
End doesn't seem to be near cause you keep fueling it as it dims, but
Remember Black Lives Matter
