A passing lyric

Black lives matter

I stand with you 

I'll hold your hand 

I'll share my home 

I'll share my land 

For nothing is different 

not in my eyes 

wee see the hatred 

we see the lies 

you are not the problem 

in this world so controlled 

we are sick of this agenda

it's getting so old 

your skin may be dark

and mine may be light 

but it's not about 

who's black and who's white 

it's about us as people 

standing as one 

there is room enough on earth 

for every man and his son 

we all felt the anger 

and started to seethe

"my neck hurts

my stomach hurts


as a united family 

we could all see 

the world dragged back 100 years 


end this now 

racism must shatter 

and scream it louder

black lives matter.

    What's taken so long?

      Very true, maybe this world isn’t as modern as we all thought after all ☹️

        LOL I meant what took you so long to write / react?

        Why is this still happening in this day and age?

          It should not be and it’s so sad that it is 🙁

          I agree with earlier comment
          All lives matter

          I do admire you for braving this subject
          Will look over some earlier writes from you soon
          Well done

          You are very right. All lives do matter and that will never change. I’m not usually this serious honestly but I felt it right at this moment to say something positive as best I could. Thank you 😊
