Black Lives Matter

By Ms Cambridge


Black lives matter

This movement needs to be heard.

We’re not saying no one else matters

The lines have become blurred.

Fighting for equality

Based on the colour of our skin.

Rosa Parks sat

So that the racists wouldn’t win.

We invite you all out

Bend down and take the knee.

Still fighting years later

Mandela tried to set us free.

‘I have a dream’ said King

‘Children black & white could hold hands’.

We need to come together

We need to take a stand.

We’ve finally had enough

Just watch as we protest.

The George Floyd incident

Shows how black people are still oppressed.

Imagine how it feels

Singled out because you’re black.

Malcolm X demanded separation

So white people couldn’t attack.

Now we congregate

Black and white side by side.

It’s time to make a change

Leave racism with no where left to hide.

Join hands with a different race,

Show our solidarity.

All lives can’t matter, until black lives matter!

Stand up and be counted, let’s break out of this disparity.
