My response to today’s WordPress word prompt is based on what’s going on, what I heard about and read in the news today miles away from me.
I feel disappointed again today, I feel like there is sadness all around me again today;
I turned on the news today, I heard it again today, one man down again today;
I’m a million miles away from where all this takes place but this does not make it OK;
I still care, I still grieve, I still fume and I still rage;
Mad with the system; mad with the ignorance; mad with the stereotypes that surround His darkness;
I feel like the rap group NWA today ,”f*ck the police” was the message they once had to say;
Why and how could they say that you ask? We are ”the land of the free” we are here to ” serve and protect thee”;
Hummm mate, I really don’t think so, you don’t get it do you? You don’t care;
You’ve shown me and the world you don’t care with your guns and violence against the darkness, his darkness;
Your statistics tell me and show me you don’t care even though I am all the way across the Atlantic over here;
In your land He is treated like prey all because of his darkness, the beautiful darkness of his skin;
My son, as he grows from a boy into a man would he be safe all the way over there?
Could and should I allow him to go there, trust that he can roam freely and safely there?
To you his darkness and He will always be public enemy number 1;
Don’t deny it you’re too quick to raise your gun! Shoot now think and ask questions later;
He and his darkness are nothing to fear; but this is something you’re clearly not trying to hear;
To me all this sounds like no fun, just think before you pick up that GUN!;
