The Diary Of The Coloured

entry picture

Another innocent black soul taken,

Hunted and slaughtered like a pig for bacon.

Many still skeptical of: “why black lives matter?”

As if racial profiling isn't more frequent for those blacker.

Unarmed and running when he met his fate,

Denied the chance of the potential to be great.

 

mother without her son because he was ripped from this world,

Ruminating on the good times, wishing she could hear his last words. 

But all she can think about is the systems racial injustice, 

Even now the state of Georgia won’t admit fault and bring the killers to justice.

Rest in power young king, we won’t forget the lynching that occurred

Your smiles embedded in our hearts and we’ll expose those guilty for February 23rd.

Any rush to judgement should be avoided. Trial and evidence should
always take precedence.
