the color of my skin


a violation
of the right to e q u a l i t y

in other words

the color of our skin

determines our lifestyle


skin is skin

but we are different

the past 

has stood with our 


we still are treated unfairly


we continue to be 

s                    eperated

from society

we continue to be

threatened for our lives 

we continue to be 



get shot


and locked

as easy as

can be & reasons that cannot be 



we are one

and we matter

justice for all 

and all for justice 

for the rest of our

long lived lives
