We’re God’s Creation (HR 12)

I woke up to the sound of the birds chirping outside my window

As the sun kissed my melanin skin

The warmth of the morning

Made me forget for a moment that racism didn’t exist

For a minute I felt the love of God

And I gave a genuine smile

Until I clicked on social media and the news

And I see another black person has been killed

And I begin to lose hope for the world

Our lives matter even if you don’t want to accept it

And no matter how you want things to stay the same

We will continue to reject it

Our voices will be heard…

…I just wish the world loved our brown skin like God does
