Tears run down the cheeks of the world
Her brow is knotted with anguish
This time against a young woman who was innocent
Why did she have to die?
How long will these tribulations last?
When will equality and justice return?
When will the pain that is felt be alleviated?
When will joy return?
I think the road ahead is long
Change doesn’t happen over night
But we must keep our hopes up
We must march on despite the trials
We must focus on the good that is happening
Work for the betterment of our community
Collaborate with like minded people
And stay steadfast until freedom is achieved
