Lord How Long?

Lord how Long?

How long will our skin be seen as a threat?

How long must we mourn the deaths of brothers and sisters that didn’t make it at the hands of the police?

How long must we see people fear us?

Lord how long?

How long must we march to be heard?

How long must we sing, chant, and kneel?

How long must we hear not guilty?

Lord how long?

How much longer must we have our own sisters and brothers deny their hatred towards us?

How long must we pray for better days?

How long must we wait for them to come?

Lord, oh Lord how long?

How long must we fight the good fight?

How long must we bury our children?

How long must we wipe our tears?

Lord, My God, how long?

We are patiently waiting but we are tired.
