Hour 8 -Pantoum-Bloodshed in our Streets

Why every summer is there is bloodshed in the streets?

We have to go on to our parties, weddings, and vacations.

Another birthday to celebrate, as we hug our families extra tight.

Just another day in the middle east, east coast, west coast fight.

 

We go on to our parties, weddings, and vacations.

Celebrating, we hug our family’s extra tight, Down South, Up North, nowhere to run from the pain of the reality.

Just another day in the battle ground between east and west

It may not be your reality or mine, but it is happening all the time.

 

Nowhere to run from the pain of the times that we are living in.

They have no memory of the past,

It may not be your reality or mine, but it is happening all the time.

They fill our minds with promises they cannot keep and yet we follow like sheep.

 

They have no connection to the past,

Perhaps we will be the ones to shatter the mold without being bought or sold.

They fill our minds with ideas that have no real value and yet we still follow.

It is more than absurd how far we have come not as a creed, but as a civilization.

 

Perhaps we will be the ones to shatter convention and reinvent our intention.

We are the makers of our destiny, this is in our control if only we work harder than the rest.

It is more than absurd how far we have come not only as a people, as a nation; let’s strengthen the congregation.

It’s time to reinvigorate the hearts & minds of those willing to reflect and end the contention with positive intervention.

 

Every summer there is blood spilled in the streets.
