The beautiful thing about LIFE is…

The beautiful thing about LIFE is
It is the gift that keeps on giving,
and it is always a good thing to be among the living.

And while we’ll miss 17-year old Trayvon,
American justice has been served and done.

It doesn’t matter the verdict handed down,
Karma misses no opportunity to make her rounds.

So make it your business to get busy living aloud.
Keep the prayers going up and walk the earth proud.

I’m not sure what the worth is for a black life,
or who triumphs during the bereaved’s abyss strife.

The beautiful thing about LIFE is simply this:
you have another opportunity to hug and kiss
on your children today – go out and have fun.
Do it for the sake of the parents who are missing their Trayvon.

Nobody said life was fair
or that your neighbors have to genuinely care.

The beautiful thing about LIFE is that it is a gift
filled with knowledge and power. Please do take a whiff.

Be informed that life is short and that this is real.
Forget not about Trayvon Martin or young Emmitt Till.
The worth of a black life seems to be about… nil.

That will not stop me from striving to be the best that I can be,
I am Qui
and the memory of innocents past will forever reside with me.

The beautiful thing about LIFE is — even when it hands you something lame
as long as we have breath, we can collectively work towards change.
Worry  not about ill hearts – Karma has their names.
