Feel My Pain 2020
9/19/2020

Sadly 70 years later,

The same problems revolve.

They choke us until we can’t breathe,

Because that’s the only way to get the problem solved.

Why do I worry if a traffic stop,

Can turn fatal or flawed.

It’s 2020 and the color of my skin,

Still worries you all?

They say it’s not about black and white,

But I ain’t believing the blogs.

This passage is what Eric Garner felt,

Before his last breath was absolved.

IT seems like they only wanna come together,

When times get hard.

But Covid-19 could care less about race,

It’s affecting us all.

So to all the countless victims of racist genocide,

I send my condolences.

And ask the powers that be to use,

Your platform to create a metamorphosis.

Feel My Pain
