Image for the poem It

It's Time

Say it loud, say it proud
Let me hear a f*** yeah if you're black or you're brown

White America steady tryna take off your crowns
They stay shooting you down

Blood in the streets
Too many bodies to count

They try to dim your shine and brainwash young minds

But united we stand and scream for justice
                  It's Time

Rise up and fight the power
Every minute, every hour

And we won't stop till we overthrow their corrupt towers
Take back what's ours

It was never theirs in the first place
They stole it from the first race to inhabit this land, we're the immigrants of these broken states

I may have a white face, but my heart is every color of skin found in this earth space
So dont you dare group me with those disgraces
Evil parasites that continue to live off of the Black race

Killing for profit
I know we can stop it
We're fighting till it changes or they nail the lid on that coffin

I can't breathe
