BLM

Black is the color of my skin~

the difference

between you and me

Live life without fear my dream~

the difference

between you and me

Matter as a human being~

the difference

between you and me

~~~~~

Willing too accept change

Have love for our diversity

Indifference no longer acceptable

Together we can grow strong

Embrace ‘n respect our differences

Poem by Leslé Honoré *

The lights are out at the white house

Made with enslaved hands

The lights are out at the white house

Pillar of stolen land

The lights are out at the white house

Because we have been at war

Battlefields soaked with our blood

Enemy from within our shores

The lights are out at the white house

A thousand points of oppression

Millions scream We Can’t Breathe

white supremacy the constant lesson

The lights are out at the white house

We elected a bigoted whore

While hope crumbles

The coward hid in bunker floors

The lights are out at the white house

democracy in darkness

Every time we filled it

With righteousness

It was met with rage

When it was most brilliant

When it’s legacy was change

america answered with a

Fascist clown

So the lights are out at the white house now

justice is in a perpetual sleep

fists reach toward the sky in defiance

Power is the Rhythm of the Protesters’

Marching feet

The lights are out at the white house now

Like the church isn’t pews or steeples

america isn’t the white house

It is an Uprising People

*Note: Being from Chicago I became aquatinted with Leslé through a mutual friend (who would share Leslé‘s poetry on Facebook). I sent her a friend request explaining we had a mutual friend and was an admirer of her poetry. Leslé‘s poetry speaks for people of color, it has strength , it has pride, it has pain and it all digs deep into the heart. In time I found her to be a wonderful strong woman of color, who stands up for and serves her community as well. I admire her as a poet, now I admire as well for the beautiful human being she is. The link is to her website if you wish to read more of her poetry.

Malcolm X’s – Police brutality is nothing new, it’s time for systematic change.
