    You
    You didn't even know him.
    But you took him and you killed him.
    You ended his life saying all of those terrible things.

    I don't feel safe.
    I can't walk anywhere because
    I am afraid that you will shoot me
    So you can tell them that you did and gain respect.

    Why
    Why can't there be more love than hate?
    Why do I have to worry day in and day out
    When I've never met you?

    They don't care what talent you have
    It's about who you know, how you look, and how you fail.
    You can have the most beautiful voice in the world
    But no one cares if you haven't got the other stuff.

    It's all sex and violence now..
    No jobs, no money..
    It's hard to find love outside of friends and family
    If I wear a smile on my face,
    I'm suddenly a d*mn spectacle.

    I don't want to lose hope, but
    I just don't know..

    Reference:

    The lynching of Michael Donald
    The drive by shooting in Schaumburg -- 14, 16, and 12 year old
    Today's media
    Song/Music video for "Bedrock"
    Everyday life.

    Lol you're always there. I've gotten used to it, now. XD But that's good. You're really cool. Thanks again for the constant support. =)

    I'm just waiting for the day in which a lot of this just turns around..this was heavily influenced by a program I saw on the KKK last night. They're so sad and depressing, it makes me sick. I have to wonder how someone can just stand there and watch someone hang from a tree with a slit throat knowing that they're the reason for it.

    And we did have a period in which it was about the love. In 1970, the KKK had 2,000 people enrolled which was like the smallest number in forever. The number went up to 3,000 in 2000..I don't know what the number is now but, geez, I feel like I've ALWAYS got to watch my back.

    indeed these kinda people no longer hide under white sheets they dress in blue call cops
    they work beside us they everywhere we go trying to be undercover, but trust me
    this why we have to come together collectively as a people and form a unity as one
    to watch each other ........

    One day we gonna have to do a poetic flow together i love your style of creativity
