Reform???

By C.Antonio


Seems to be that the list of Blacks murdered by those in blue just continues to grow,

More discouraging though is that now even the blacks in blue have joined in the abuse and killing of yet another Negro..

Still not healed from what was suffered by Emmitt Till, 100 yards from mother's door, Tyre Nichols shed his last tears, stung by "scorpions" with his same hue sworn to protect him, me, and you did the exact opposite setting us back 100 plus years...


My opps now days are the cops and there's no justice but just "us" falling by the hands of law over-enforcement, saying their names ain't enough, Tyre can't see his son grow up and once again Ben Crump gotta represent another dead litigant..To the mothers and fathers of those brutally beat, shot, and slain in vain, please forgive me for your pain, for my acts as a felon cause the swelling of hatred for our kind in the hearts and minds of blacks and whites in kind causing more blood to needlessly drain...


For how a traffic stop starts the ending of a life to start, is a question loaded with anger and fear, unanswered for centuries yet continues relentlessly sparking more protests and marches that last a month or two then disappear... No monetary settlement for Brianna nor excessive sentence for George's killers fills the void of their lost lives, one a first responder the other kneeled upon until unresponsive, both united in deaths undeserved with still no reason why described...


My sons, my daughters I caution to be safe, aware of their surroundings and rights, while inwardly I fear even when they do and are in the right are they simply still just targets set on sight...Lawmakers and undertaker both make money when another Black is locked or buried away, same cry just from a different guy, same tears shed just from a different eye, same pain, same race, just another day... Were the indictments so swift 'cause the murderers were black killing another Black, but then does it even matter when 3 days after the attack, mother and father can never get their son back...


Unaware of how to change things or make a good difference when constantly made a victim, another body down by an ignorantly fired round or an angry cop filled with racist ambition. I've made a many mistakes, hurt a lot of people, burned a lot of bridges, and caught a lot of felonies, but I'm still a child of God, even though I've made my life road hard, I still stride toward being a better me...


Dead and gone nothing grows but the hair and nails on the corpse of the dead too soon,

no prayer, song, nor poem can accurately speak the sentiment experienced by those left behind in gloom...


Stop killing me, stop killing us, stop killing please, police and civilian, live and let live,

black or white shouldn't be the deciding factor of death or life nor should the hate we face be what we embrace and give...


WE CAN'T REST IN PEACE UNTIL IN PEACE WE LIVE!!!
