Numbness

A Poem

The words become harder to find

Each time a new murder

A senseless killing

Is displayed for the whole word to see

A cop killing a black person

Police brutality used synonymously

With what can only be described as murder

It’s not the same

And yet we become numb to it

A new video released seemingly every week

A different person seemingly every time

But we can’t let it numb us

Something has to change

The system

Has.

To.

Change.

We sang let freedom ring

Yet to this day

Freedom is silent for us.
