If You Listen

The past few weeks
Have been difficult to process
We have watched the police using
violence against protesters

Some take advantage
We call them looters
People want change
But the response is slaughter

How can a skin color can determine
privileges and status
Flags and statues burning
no law we can trust

How is this going to end?
How far things will go?
How many people would get hurt?
How many would go to prison?

Is it really just a dream
To live in peace and empathy
or are we going to keep begging
for everyone’s sympathy
