Black Lives Matter – A poem

“I can’t breathe”. The final words of George Floyd. 

All good people understand this tragedy was inhumane.

Protests commenced all around the world.

Global Grief. Why kill an innocent black man?

Do Black Lives Matter? Tell me, do they? Yes, they do!

We need to understand the experiences of black people.

Black History, Black Prejudice and Black lives.

Be empathetic and most importantly be a good person. 

We need to understand that the unkind, cruel and ignorant acts have consequences on the person they are bestowed upon.

Be kind. Be empathetic and most importantly be a good person.

“Our lives begin to end the day we became silent about things that matter”.

The beautiful words of a black activist.

Martin Luther King had a dream.

Let’s make his dream come true. 

Black Lives Matter.
