Crimeless

Listen my child,

to a story,

written in time,

and crafted in blood…

 

She did nothing wrong,

except desire freedom.

 

He did nothing wrong,

except fight slavery.

 

She did nothing wrong,

except refuse to stand.

 

He did nothing wrong,

except advocate for equality.

 

They did nothing wrong,

except fight, and bleed, and

cry for

BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS!

 

All were persecuted,

now hailed as heroes.

For their efforts?

 

A boy dies because he wanted skittles.

A boy dies because he had a toy gun.

A girl loses her father because of his skin color.

 

They fought,

they started it.

Now we have to finish it.

 

They are crimeless,

do you understand now?
