Together
Always Us versus them
Never us and them
Never we
Always us us us
Gangs versus gangs
They shoot and kill each other
Yet I bet none of them could tell you how the feud even started
They fight for what?
Jail time? Death?
They aim for those things yet they can't aim for a Captan gown, a graduation or getting into a good college
Always you versus me
Never us
Always black versus white
Never Unity
Never togetherness
Why?
Cause some of us can't stand the fact that God created us all
Even if some of us are of different skin tone then the next
WHY DO WE FIGHT EACH OTHER
WHY DO WE KILL EACH OTHER
FOR HONOR
FOR RECOGNITION
for the right to say we did it?
To say we took the life of someone who might have Been actually getting a full ride to college or someone who might have actually had a family
We are not different
We are all human
So how bout we all unite
Under the dream of freedom
