When we are young, we are told that we can be whoever we wish to be
We are reassured that as long as we lead a just life, we will be treated justly
The brutal harshness of reality is that justice is not divine, it is flawed
It is flawed because those who govern are men
By nature, man is nothing more than a series of flaws
Corrupt. Weak. Selfish.
It is not until we are 'old enough' that we realize that true nature of the 'system'
Do we truly have a voice in government?
Are our opinions truly represented?
It is a question that plagues many a mind and ruins many a faith
What matters is what you do when injustice occurs
Do you express your distaste for the matter among your circle of friends?
Or do you collectively call upon like-minded individuals and rage?
Are we fucked no matter what we do....are we invisible...are we merely paws in 'their' game?
Personally, I say:
REBEL. REACH OUT. BE HEARD.
If we do not speak for those who have been silenced unjustly, who will.
Trayvon was far from the first and until change occurs (real change), he will not be the last.
Below set of my hand and heart. Featuring my father and brother...the definitive suspects.
Their voice. Your voice. Our voice,
