FEEL MY SCREAM

I need you to feel my scream
My silence has been exhausting
My march has left my feet raw
My blind hopes that you would see
Me
Have…

I need you to taste motherly tears
Her eyes can’t give any more
Her heart lies on the ground
Her nights are left in moaning
Mourning
Why…

I need you to hear his pain
His hurting hands raised
His faith left in yesterday
His broken spirit’s last rage
Murdered
Again…

I need you to watch our anger
Our history should educate you
Our patience is set on boil
Our reasons for peace died
Forgive
Who…

I need you to understand it
Who has done it again
Who has drawn first blood
Who has stood over the bodies
Calm
Please…

Now you are surprised and expect us
To trust you when you constantly suspect us
To accept your assaults without reprisals
To be ever hopeful in your innocent denials
Really
No…

Now you bring him out as one of our own today
To apologize for you as you safely hide tucked away
To plead for unity then send tactical into the crowd
To break more each night for protesting you too loud
Rights
Stomped…

I need you to suffer to your knees
I need you to bow to your head
I need you to grip to your hands
I need you to call to your faith
I need you to cry to your guilt

Maybe then I’ll believe
You’ll teach your sons
To treat our sons
As your own
