Dealing with the injustice death of George Floyd, I found his death really hard to deal with. I decided to write a poem about it so people could understand the reality of the racial warfare going on in our world.

MY NAME IS GEORGE FLOYD

All I can feel is the weight that you put on top of me; the weight from your knee; holding me still until I could not breathe.

Why did I die at the hands of someone who is supposed to be fighting for life; but the center of strife is not with the police; it's with the people who want our bodies on the streets covered up with white sheets.

You'd think you all would have learned from Eric garner; your going to have to try a little harder because though your skin is a weapon of armor; we wear our skin with honor

You're going to have to try a little harder because we wear our skin with honor.

I Can't Breathe.
