Being Black in America 2020: Ahmaud Arbery #Rhyme #Unapologetic

Out for a jog
on a beautiful day.
A young man, who’s birthday,
was just three months away.
His feet hit the pavement,
a steady rhythm began.
His heart beat strong,
a song of freedom, as he ran.
An unsuspecting American
on his daily routine.
He never knew what was coming,
a threat that went unseen.
A fear I can’t imagine,
when he realized the truth.
The dread that appeared
his future, deduced.
Innocent, he was,
yet, he became the prey.
Two wolves in sheep’s clothing
ended his life, that day. (Feb. 23)
Not only was his death
made silent, and veiled,
It took seventy-four days
for his murderers to be jailed.
Killed in cold blood,
and left dead on the street,
because racism is still alive,
and Black Americans are not free.
Ahmaud Arbery was a human.
An American, through and through.
He was only out for a jog,
his death was undue.
To be Black in America
means a target on your back.
God rest each soul
that has died, because of that.
Black American’s aren’t free,
and never will they be,
unless racism can be destroyed,
and that starts with you, and me.

😏 You won’t like it, here. It’s dark. 😏 😌I am unapologetically me. Embrace me, or, let me go. 😌

  1. I was having a discussion with a friend of mine who tend to defend the fact that racism has lost its whims in the American society.
    To be, it doesn’t seem so, people still find diversity as a threat.
