We are TrayVon

TrayVon and I have a lot in common
Our melanin does summon
all kinds of stares
and standing neck hairs
on the back of some necks;
a prejudice vex.

The law is written like a bad riddle;
George shot TrayVon who packed tea and skittles.

TrayVon was 17 and I’m a few years older.
I’m a parent like Sybrina — and the world feels colder.

I’m sure when TrayVon was a baby – no one made Sybrina smile more.
She never expected him to beat her to his eternal resting snore.

His father: Tracy Martin exhibits a strong front indeed.
28 days ago he buried his young male seed.

TrayVon wasn’t selling, packing or smoking weed.
George had a racial issue and to hate he did heed.

George is on the run, as we go over this wrongful death tally.
George should be under arrest says the 25 thousand from yesterdays rally.

Geraldo took to FOX NEWS and addressed the racial fire
by saying TrayVon was shot because of his hoodie attire.

His hoodie attire? Is Geraldo on drugs?
Wearing a hoodie does not warrant a 9mm slug.

What on earth could TrayVon have done to save his life
Besides running and yelling “HELP” in the dark of the night?

Florida’s STAND YOUR GROUND LAW is now under review.
Several states including Texas and Arizona house a similar law too.

What on earth are we going to do?

TrayVon is beloved. TrayVon is gone.
I’m Qui
Showing my support by putting this hoodie on.
Falling for nothing – In UNITY I’m strong.

Put a hoodie on if you understand what I mean.
It’s not just a racial issue, but a RIGHT and WRONG thing.
