As It Spreads

The disease of fear,
Bringing so many tears,
Coninues to spread,

Across the nation.
On every station.

Can it be blocked?
Is there something we can adopt,
As a culture to stop,
The contiued spread?

Across the nation.
On every station.

Behind every color is a man,
Whose fear pushes his hand,
If only we could understand.

Across the nation.
On every station.

But as a man lies dead,
All we can see is red,
The mistake was too great,
You cannot forgive in hate,
As the escalation spreads.

Across the nation.
On every station.

 

Inspired by the events in connection with the deaths of Alton Sterling (7/5/2016), Philando Castile (7/6/2016), and the 5 Police Officers shot in the Dallas Shooting (7/6/2016).
