If the system turns away from the abuses inflicted on the guilty, then who can be next but the innocents?”
― Michael Connelly, The Concrete Blonde
My man just wouldn’t stop strangling me.
I had to fight for my mentality.
Braving my dreams versus my reality.
Called the police to stop the insanity.
They rolled up with all authority.
Judged and cuffed me because of my emotionality.
Not me, him; hate, could not answer me.
It beat me in the face unshackling my mortality.
Another senseless victim of police brutality,
My man screams as I take my last breath silently.
