Black lives mattー

“No, ALL lives matter”

Thank you, thank you sir

Thanks for the input you set foot

 

Your interruption was okay, dare I say

It was even a little rousing 

The still silence succeeding your sudden statement sustains me

Igniting the blaze in my heart from which I speak

 

Your interruption only fuels my flames

Allowing me to enlighten you with my fiery words

I solemnly speak on the reality of police brutality

The racism visible in our society

Our society which sees solely surface skin

 

So thanks again for your interruption

It only feeds my need to speak

It shows why I cannot just stand by

While others die and cry, wondering why

Is this because of their skin

You empower me, so

Thank you, Sir
