Black Like Me

6/1/2021

Black Like Me

If you lived in my city

And was raised on my block,

Would you just get arrested

Or shot down by the cops?

If you were starving to death

And your body was weak,

Would you wait on a blessing

Or steal you something to eat?

If you were envied, hated,

And stereotyped

Would you sit down and be quiet

Or stand up and fight?

If you were handcuffed, slammed,

And had a knee in your back,

Would you try to resist,

Or just lay down flat?

If you were big, strong,

Smart, and athletic,

Would you die for what’s right?

Or live and regret it?

If you were sitting in trial,

Shedding crocodile tears,

Would you get probation,

Or 25 years?

You can walk in my shoes and paint a picture to see

But would you still be alive if you were

Black like me?
