I thought my voice was to small to be heard, so I kept my mouth shut

And when the people were screaming for help, I did not raise my hand because I thought there was nothing I could do

When the marches started, I thought they didn’t need another sign, so I locked myself inside 

And when time went on as the violence rose, as the people begged for justice, I kept my face a mask

Not advocating for either side

My silence did not make me neutral, but made me cruel

The lack of a voice only gave more power to the opressors

I was just as much of a villian

And when I realized my mistake, I was already on the wrong side of history


Don’t be on the wrong side, lend your voice, your dollars, your hope

We are a force and we demand justice.
