I Still Believe 

Can you hear the rhythmic sounds of their feet hitting the pavement, a statement of unity in our quest for dignity 
Trying to find asylum in a prison that only gives us a taste of liberty 
A pattern of distrust created from years of hostility 
Where the racial divide goes beyond our community
A broken system, broken communities, and broken people seeking to be heard
So we hurt the things that are closest to us because your ears are closed to our words 
We endured slave ships, slavery, reconstruction, Jim Crow laws, Apartheid, and the Civil Rights movement
because we are survivors 
A network of believers and we will never grow tired
Of fighting the good fight of faith
Because we all want the same thing, which is for our family to feel safe 
But we can do more with love than we can hate 
Since the challenge at our doorstep affects more than one race 
It's not a black problem, a white problem, and a brown problem.
It's an American problem.  
Once we embrace this idea, we can move forward rather than be divided by our fears 
Then we won't see more mothers at funerals shedding tears 
It would be ignorant for me to believe there's a one size fit all solution
But I'm optimistic that a step forward is wearing each other shoes
Therefore you'll understand my pain, you'll understand my thought process, you'll understand why I bleed
Then the curtain can be move and you'll will see what's possible if you only believe.  Selah 
The political system will use this occasion to further their agenda
This is why you must understand, your vote, your voice, and your ideas will make them surrender
Power belongs to the people!
Don't wait for people who benefit from our division to give us the power to be equal 
The ancestral thread that ties us together
Demands we as a people should do better 
To push ourselves beyond our beliefs 
Into a melting pot of ideas where unity brings peace 
Where do we go from here? 
It's the question that burns our soul 
An ancestral wound seeking to be made whole 
Law enforcement officials are taking lives for the simplest things 
Yet we are fighting against each other because we're the only ones in the ring.  
Because black on black crime is the norm in our community
Change must begin with us before we expect others to take the responsibility
What are we teaching the next generation?
When we disregard our women for record sales 
Promote the gangster lifestyle as a goal to strive for 
Encourage materialism as the only thing to live for
Which has cheapen our existence and turn Martin Luther King's dream into nightmare.
Yet I believe.
Beyond the perils and distractions harmonized by human interaction
When I see a black youth hug a white police officer in the midst of a riot
When Black Lives Matter and other people can't deny it
When the American Flag is the only flag that represent our core value
When immigrants aren't seen as second class citizen
I still believe
When the rich no longer exploit the poor
When opportunity knocks on everybody's door
I still believe
That one day we can be the country we were meant to be
From sea to shining sea.
I still believe
Do you?
