Everyday - Poem by Marcquiese Burrell

Quite the audacity to hype a premature opinion
My disposition is beyond your comprehension
you say i'm careless cause you know it leaves you breathless
you say i'm careless cause you're down and feeling helpless
I ain't about the drama, there's gonna be some karma
and when she dials your number, suit up with the body armor
I love the skin i'm in, I've embraced each and every flaw
I love the skin i'm in, I'm live, uncut and very raw
Throw all the stones and still I stand,
i'm standing undefeated
Lies taught us,
History's been cheated

All I see is violence, I want no more silence,
Let words be ammunition
cause the tension on the inside has you rioting
I dream for better, let's come together,
Lets reform the world with a task of piloting
it gets hard, leave most scared
Inside them there's a graveyard
everyday someone's slayed

It's not right nor okay
Turn attention on today
Put an end to the growing number of human violations
Excercise your brain with some mental education
The present repeats the formula of past discrimination

When we scream for justice, we are looking for a little bit of love and peace
taken a stand for all the wrong commited
Let it end, let it decease
Dropping off, one-by-one, the guilty shouldn't be acquitted
Champion those with a voice because the people need to be heard
Could be gunned down, assasined
in the same form or fashion
as Dr.Martin Luther king
Champion those with a dream because they need to be heard
Everything against that vision is not often what's preferred.
