UNBLACK THE FEAR

UNBLACK THE FEAR

Hands Up. Hands Down
Stretched Out. On The Ground
On Bended Knees Or
On My Couch At Ease
Tell Me Please
What’s It Gonna Take
For True America To Be Great
Before Someone Else Unjustly Dies
Radical Change Must Highly Rise
Above Tradition. Depiction
Gotta Stop This Mad Fiction
Innocently Playing In The Snowy Park
Or Walking Home In The Rain
His Intended Mark
Or Fearfully Looking Out Her Window
Distracted By The Noisy Dark
Brutally. Fatally Taken
By The Guilty Weapons Of
Discrimination. Premeditation
What’s It Gonna Take
For True America To Be Great
Before Someone Else Unjustly Dies
Radical Change Must Highly Rise
Above Tradition. Depiction
Gotta Stop This Mad Fiction
Riding In My Car Or
On My Motorcycle Or
Unclothed. Unarmed Or
Cuffed In The Rear
No Threat. No Harm. No Fear
Fear Like The Rainbow In The Sky
Multi-Color Comprised
Like The Dangers In The Deep Blue
This Selected Fear Must Be Subdued
Fear Must Ceased To Override
The Badge Of Honor. The Badge Of Pride
What’s It Gonna Take
For True America To Be Great
Equality. Justice For All The Same
No Matter The Color. The Gender
No Matter The Name
UnBlack The Fear Of
Black Lives
Before Another. Innocently
Brutally. Unjustly Dies
