To Know, What It’s Like

Writings on the wall,

but we cannot see the words,

It’s…

Air pollution in the skies,

And my vision’s getting blurred.

It’s…

Friends and family who die  from cancer,

Could it be poison in the sky

What’s the answer?

It’s…

Babies drinking lead and artificial formula,

Artificial foods and genetically modified organisms,

Attacking our bodies and antibodies as they are forming in them,

It’s…

The melanin that paints a target on my back,

The closer I am to black,

It’s…

I cannot breathe,

I cannot breathe,

I cannot breathe…

Do you hear me?

It’s…

I am becoming an endangered species,

So why do you fear me?
