I CAN’T BREATHE

I can’t breathe
My life has no value
It’s only worthwhile to me
And to my family
And my friends
And my community
But not to you
Not to this country

I can’t breathe
Can’t you see
Societal inequity
Leaves you unaccountable
To injustices perpetrated against me
I don’t fight back
I only beg to be free

I can’t breathe
My stomach hurts
My neck hurts
Everything hurts
I can’t breathe
