Day 1: we begin

Day 1 starts with tears and a complete loss of faith. 

this aint a florida thing
this aint a prosecutor thing
this aint a gun regulation, thing
this is an american thing
the devaluing of black bodies to the point of extinction
we don't need another court to tell us 
its legal to shoot and kill and unarmed black kid

we got the bodies as reminders
the grief still fresh on our skin 
Sean Bell, Oscar Grant, Travon Martin
we did not expect the courts to do you justice
only wished that somehow

our sons would learn to outrun their bullets
