Heathens Kingdom

I am my brother's keeper
Because I am not like Cain
I am tired seeing my people  
dying in vain we don't want to  
hurt no more please take
away the strain and the pain
 
Policeman draws his gun  
he's trained to shoot to kill
Another child is slain
We're being put down like  
wild animals forced to look  
at our blood spilled on the
Concrete all blooded up
And covered up in white  
sheets and it get deep
 
But wounds do heal
In the meantime who  
really cares of how we feel
Debilitated and paralyzed
We are still marching and
protesting for our lives
Because yes "We All Matter"
And no one deserves to get  
bruised and battered
 
It's a war zone we aren't  
Even safe Inside our own homes  
strapped up with  
9mm's and 45's to protect our bones
Killing each other pointing
a pistol at your own brother
Leaving behind children  
and weeping mothers
Violence and more violence
Everyday it gets more violent
Can we please for God's sake
get a moment of silence…………..
