In regards to racism and recent murders of Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd, I made this poem of natural rights in America. I hope you enjoy:)

Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happyness

Those unalienable rights

Those unalienable rights that are supposed to be protected

Those unalienable rights that are supposed to be protected by our government.

Life.

Life. Yet innocent people are dying.

Life. Yet innocent people are dying. All lives won’t matter equally

Life. Yet innocent people are dying. All lives won’t matter equally Until black lives matter.

Life.

Life. We’re all entitled to live

Life. We’re all entitled to live So why are black people an exception?

Life. We’re all entitled to live So why are black people an exception? How come they’re dying left and right?

Liberty.

Liberty. All of the people in the US have a voice

Liberty. All of the people in the US have a voice Use it to bring justice

Liberty. All of the people in the US have a voice Use it to bring justice For those who can’t speak.

Liberty.

Liberty. Copper on the Statue of Liberty

Liberty. Copper on the Statue of Liberty Becoming green and tarnished

Liberty. Copper on the Statue of Liberty Becoming green and tarnished The universal symbol of freedom

Liberty. Copper on the Statue of Liberty Becoming green and tarnished The universal symbol of freedom In the not-so-free country.

Liberty.

Liberty. Said you cannot hurt others

Liberty. Said you cannot hurt others But give the same liberty to them.

Liberty. Said you cannot hurt others But give the same liberty to them. When did we read over that?

Pursuit of Happiness.

Pursuit of Happiness. We are allowed to build our own lives

Pursuit of Happiness. We are allowed to build our own lives Some of us are being cut short of that chance

Pursuit of Happiness. We are allowed to build our own lives Some of us are being cut short of that chance Happiness turns to rage.

Pursuit of Happiness.

Pursuit of Happiness. We’re all supposed to be different

Pursuit of Happiness. We’re all supposed to be different Yet we hurt one other for being unique.

Pursuit of Happiness. We’re all supposed to be different Yet we hurt one other for being unique When we have the right to make ourselves happy.

Don’t forget these unalienable rights

Don’t forget these unalienable rights UNALIENABLE

Don’t forget these unalienable rights UNALIENABLE Meaning they CANNOT be taken away

Don’t forget these unalienable rights UNALIENABLE Meaning they CANNOT be taken away So protect those for all when the powerful become blind.
