I’m appreciative of MSNBC
for taking a brief moment to focus on me.
I am but a mother – I do walk the mile.
I couldn’t imagine the burden of burying a child.

I’m appreciative for the media bringing to light
Sybrina & Tracy – and their painful plight.
Can we get an arrest? Can we get one tonight?
It’s not a “black vs. white” thing but a “WRONG vs. RIGHT”.

I do appreciate TrayVon’s face
getting as much time as Natalie Holloways Case.
I know it’s not America’s usual topic of concern.
However caring for all is a lesson well learned.

I’m appreciative of all who turned out at the rallies.
I saw the plethora of races ranking high in tally.
I’m appreciative of the senators representing our good
Who chose to show up for work with their domes under hood.

I’m appreciative for Al Sharpton continuing the journey and speaking on stage
straight through his mothers death and even her burial day.
He did not waver, he did not stray.
I’m appreciative of Rev. Al Sharpton today.

I appreciate Rev. Jessie Jackson for showing up too.
For this is a civic struggle he was born to march through.

The march is still ours; Equality is still needed;
When folks take the law into their own hands and vigilantly seed it.

I’m appreciative to have the DOJ on the case – I appreciate the time.
Trayvon Benjamin Martin lost his life – to a cellophane crime.

I’m appreciative to God for giving me a chance to see
somethings change in the USA, but not enough … obviously.

I appreciate the unity of those of us that will.
I look forward to the day when a show of melanin is no right to kill.

There’s no need.
We’re all apart of Adam and Eve’s seed.

It is because of you that things will continue to change.
For it is KEY in our evolution as sure as Qui is my name.

I’m appreciative…
)))HUGS(((

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.

Ooo.
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.
