my heart beating, and
my soul bleeding,
wondering how everything flipped.
How did the cops become bad guys,
the villains become rectified, and
spirituality be set aside?
Why do we disrespect our protectors,
Protect our detractors, and
let or children defect from decency?
Why is fine to film beatings,
tape bullies and violent meetings, but
not pick up a phone to cease it?
This our world as we made it today,
from Hell, it’s just a stone’s throw away, and
and we act like it’s okay.
We shelter our kids,
rationalize what they did, and
blame everyone but them.
Race isn’t a color,
but one is more precious than the others, and
so, the other colors have to roll over.
This is how we live now,
words are offensive and we must bow
to those who whose tears are loud.
Those who have voices,
are the ones with the choices, and
we have no say anymore.
Being respectful is outdated,
being courteous is overrated, and
being plain spoken is hated.
When did everything get flipped?
Did a switch get tripped?
Or did we just fall asleep at the wheel?
