America the What:Now

IMG_0623

The heartbeat of America is hurting everyday
The essence of our glory is slowly fading away
The truth about our history I hear the wise ones say

Mass incarceration,

migrant slavery,

impoverished pay

We resist our responsibility, mine and yours at bay
Punishing those who are different,

brown,

poor

or gay

The sun won’t shine for real until we truly must reveal
The change that’s gonna come

through the actions that we lay.
