Cry of the coloured

What colour am I?

Black, brown, mixed or white?

Am I brother, friend or enemy 

Or am I different because of the pigment in my veins and lines?

 

Freedom, freedom, freedom

We chant, but do we feel?

Talk of peace, integrity and love

Yet the gun shots still don’t heal

 

Who are we to point and blame

System, judiciary or family?

The hurt, pain, tears and grief

Victims, friends and loved ones have to carry

 

Cant you just look at me

And acknowledge me equally

Skin colour and differences aside

Standing together in UNITY

 

Black lives matter

Actually, ALL LIVES MATTER AND ARE THE SAME

Your colour, religion or culture don’t define you

We are the Human Race

 

Stop the killings, mass shootings

And lets all be unified

A world colourful like a Crayola box

No more BLACK vs WHITE
