what can we do now

My vision was blurry but it’s clearer now

Seems like the world is slipping away, and we need you now

just turn the Tv on and you’ll see it,

the crimes and the comedian election that we can’t seem to beat it.

They say that we getting better but it doesn’t seem that way,

Well i would like to be there that day.

Wave my my fist in the air and tell it like it is,

A women’s accomplishment and you say that it’s his.

Don’t understand why we all can't show love,

It’s like if it doesn’t fit in in the world then it must be the glove.

You see, how can we stand up when were still held down,

This society doesn’t see you if your skin is brown.

Matter fact if you’re intelligent as well, they’ll see your toughness,

Or they’ll get scared of you like they did to douglass.

But he left a legacy and hit the mark,

So did that “No” years go from the one and only Rosa Parks.

You see my point here is that we’re fighting every day

For a battle that seems to never go away.

For the little boys and girls all around the globe,

If not we'll be stuck in what looks like a super tight robe.

What can we do now?

It starts with us, so let’s make that vow.
