I think of Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton (Trayvon Martin’s parents)… DAILY!
My heart is SO FULL for them.
I had to get some emotion out…
Boiled over rage,
Geared up to engage.
Pent up frustration,
Vulture seeking prey,
Unwilling to obey.
They commanded you to stop,
Pissed you didn’t make it as a cop.
You already made a decision,
You would hunt with precision.
The devil took over,
Couldn’t shake him off your shoulder.
Concealed semi-automatic gun,
You took away a families loved one.
Could it have been a clouded decision?
Your lack of vision caused a collision.
I pray for your soul.
Your spirit will take a toll.
Reminded us that racism is silent.
Hoping the streets don’t get violent.
Could there be you in all of us?
Silently waiting to make a ruckus?
I pray this can’t be true,
But hate is an easy emotion to ensue.
There may be a silver lining,
God will reveal in his own timing.
Until then I pray for the family,
Trying to make sense of this senseless tragedy.
