My Nightmare is Real
I woke up from a nightmare
Drenched in sweat
I heard bullets and screams ring through the air
"POLICE, PUT DOWN YOUR WEAPON!"
"BLACK LIVES MATTER!"
As I looked out the window, blood flooded the streets
Police and civilians all were dead
If all lives matter, why was innocent blood surrounding our streets...
Why did this war break free
Could others not see
That behind various colors of flesh
Is a beating heart, a working mind, and veins that all keep us alive?
Being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender
Being black, muslim, white, or latino
Being a man or a woman
Doesn't make us who we are
But our single sided stories
Possessed our minds
And made a human race become victims of murder, hate, and crime
Blood started to rain upon my windows
I pinched myself hoping it was just a dream
Too bad all of our perceptions of each other made this dream our realities.
