Black Lives Matter

by Toya P.Y.T.

Dear White America,

Why are you pissed at me

is it that my history eliminates the mystery?

You deem me powerless, I'm undefeated cowardless

resiliency is prowess ascended the lotus flower

 

Told you you couldn't kill me 

desperate to play the part 

not destined to be my equal

no matched to light the dark

you're finished and I just started

was happy to birth the trauma 

you ended up breeding artists

now you're hatin' the stretch marks

 

I'm embracing these war scars

my people in fast cars

my people with slow starts

refuse to play small parts

my people toppin' charts 

delivering raw art

you can't oppress a generation when freedom is at heart

 

chorus

at heart

when freedom is at heart 

no stoppin' it when it starts 

when freedom is at heart

communities sadder

black lives matter

you mad that we said it

we mad that we had to

 

The underground railroad took strategy

who Harriet had to be could only come naturally

The moors colonized Europe displayed apathy

they stole a perfect blue print

than splash paint catastrophe

 

they disarmed unarmed relics

reversed psychology

blowing up shooting stars

that brought you astrology

despite the mission of total black execution

we show up to the table with peace as a solution

I'm embracing these war scars

my people in fast cars

my people with slow starts

refuse to play small parts

my people toppin' charts 

delivering raw art

you can't oppress a generation when freedom is at heart

 

chorus

at heart

when freedom is at heart 

no stoppin' it when it starts 

when freedom is at heart

communities sadder

black lives matter

you mad that we said it

we mad that we had to
