Black, White, Asian, race or any color 
We're no different nor better than all or each other 
We are all sisters and brothers 
Not by blood nor by skin 
But by the spirit that is within 
Those who were shot, their life is running thin
Yet they are those with the "color" on their skin 
We need to stop the violence and to allow equality in 
Taring each other down and killing all around 
Hearing gunshots is a sudden and normal sound 
Shootings on the left
Dead bodies on the right 
Got me running around and hearing my heart pound
Hearing on the news: 
" A young black boy, shot dead and was found" 
" An asian kid was kidnapped, without anybody hearing a sound"
Screaming and hollering, "Give us freedom, equal rights, and equality now!"
With all this chaos, corruption, and power
We say we want freedom, rights, and equality for every minute and every hour 
People say they want it now 
But in my head I’m thinking “How?!” 
If our heads are too deep and yet we are drowning....
Drowning too deep of every second, to a minute, then within every hour.....
Drowning in our silence, without any voice nor no power 
We say: 
“Black lives matter!” 
“White lives matter!”
“Asian lives matter!”
Yet we need to chatter:
"That Equality matters!"
