Grand Jury has spoken: Officer Darren Wilson will NOT face any charges

Don’t be mad, don’t take to the streets, even if the system can feel like a cheat

Don’t cry or yell just because  this world basically tells you

“Go to hell!”

We mourn, we weep and we fear in our sleep

Like they were men  in white sheets,

Instead of all blue and badged, nice and neat

We could say fuck the police or down with the pigs,

But we’ve been saying that since the time when our parents  were saying “Ya dig?”

True, we won’t be hanged from trees and by the grace of God we’re legally and technically free

No longer three fifths of a person by law, we should be able to stand proud and tall

“Change we can believe in,” that’s what they said after all…

Legal, fair and just, that’s what they said applied to us

No more unjust, disgust or unwarranted distrust

These were the words, the hopes and the dreams,

but as we grow older, we wonder what does it all mean?

Blind to race and color, they claim

Judge only by character, for we’re all the same

these words appealing on paper, they may be

but, how can they be true when one man walks free

while the other, unarmed and all,

Gunned down like an animal

No Fair Trial, in accordance with law

Whether it be skittles and tea, whistling at the corner store

or surrendering hands , not resisting please!

Are we really who we say we are?

All men created equal, our immortal declaration.

Were these words meant for every member of this great nation?

I don’t know, if only I could ask Trayvon or maybe Michael Brown

All I know is with every broken declaration, my heart is more cast down
