Anne Frank: “We’re all searching for happiness; we’re all leading lives that are different and yet the same.” 

Black lives matter and they have since slavery,

Us black people have a lot that we can be,

Over billions of us were murdered for silly little things,

But when a white person kills and we commit a robbery,

White people are transported to prison,

But us black, we are murdered,

Murdered in cold blood just like Gorge Floyd,

But for what, illegally selling cigarettes,

Because in my opinion that should be illegal,

White people should not get let off the hook because that’s just evil.

I want my voice to be heard and to motivate people,

Many of us are afraid to speak the truth because we don’t want to turn our backs on our people,

Even some white people feel the same because not all white people are bad but there is many that are,

And the few that are should be put in their place,

Because most of us hate people who are two faced.

No matter if you’re white, black, green or even blue we should all be treated the


As we may only have one life to live and life is not a game.
