Black Lives Matter — Veronica Daniel

Black lives matter
That’s what they say
I still see injustice
Every single day

Black lives matter
I wait to be served
Yet you still ignore me
I won’t be unnerved

Black Lives Matter
The Pandemic is here
Why are my people dying
Reasons are not clear

Black Lives Matter
This is my ride
Still stopped 30 times
Always pushed aside

Black Lives Matter
There’s no racism you say
Friendships divided
Dismiss it away

Black Lives Matter
I want to be free
To speak my truth
So, let me breathe

Black lives do matter
