Soulful Cries

“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.”- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

I am tired.

I am tired. I am hurt.

I am tired. I am hurt. I am angered by the thirst

I am tired. I am hurt. I am angered by the thirst of my blood

I am tired. I am hurt. I am angered by the thirst of my blood and what it’s worth

I am tired. I am hurt. I am angered by the thirst of my blood and what it’s worth as it drips

I am tired. I am hurt. I am angered by the thirst of my blood and what it’s worth as it drips upon the earth.

From the shackles to the chains

From the shackles to the chains since my skin is not a gain.

As I live

As I live I breath

As I live I breath I think.

Just to see life past the brink.

There’s a problem and it’s here.

And it’s been here, thats the fear.

From the face of Emmett Till.

From the face of Emmett Till. Why are black lives such a thrill?

Can we still

Can we still for a moment?

Can we still for a moment? And find the value of a life?

As they’re taken to never come back and we simply hold the strife.

For my life!

In my eyes.

See the pain and soulful cries.

Do you see them in my eyes?

Can you feel them in these rhymes?

Can you see Breonna Taylor?

Can you see Breonna Taylor? Rest In Peace.

Can you see Breonna Taylor? Rest In Peace. Rest In Peace.

Can you see Michael Brown?

Can you feel the love decrease?

Rest In Peace

Rest In Peace Trayvon Martin.

Rest In Peace Sandra Bland.

Rest In Peace Eric Garner.

Feel the blood in my hand...

Feel the blood in my hand... for my skin.

I am hunted

I am hunted I am feared

I am hunted I am feared from within.

White and Black.

White and Black. Good and Evil.

White and Black. Good and Evil. Right and Wrong.

White and Black. Good and Evil. Right and Wrong. Good and Sin.

Rest In Peace Ahmaud Arbery

Rest In Peace Tamir Rice.

Can you see the extermination

Can you see the extermination of how skin

Can you see the extermination of how skin holds a price.

And it’s life...

Rest In Peace

Rest In Peace Botham Jean

Rest In Peace Botham Jean Bettie Jones

Rest In Peace Botham Jean Bettie Jones Stephon Clark.

Will their lives ever make the final spark?

Open eyes to the lies in our mind we avoid.

Rest In Peace Atatiana Jefferson.

Rest In Peace George Floyd.

Can we see these soulful cries?

Can we see these soulful cries? End the hate that still resides.

Why some eyes are truly blind

Why some eyes are truly blind from the past

Why some eyes are truly blind from the past and the lies.

My soul cries.
