Justice (for Trayvon)

 

Hunger an illusion, Of the bodies changing place
The plants again are sprouting, The fingers spread for grace

Your privilege an illusion, Your strut will take you down
Injustice in the present, Will be an empty, long lost sound

Imagine that day you stand before me, Your gun, your pride in hand
My eyes, your eyes in clutches, A take, just take your stand

But on this day there’s justice, My eyes, your eyes in hand
Fingers spreading fingers, Arms and arms we stand

And on this day there’s justice, Light and darkness stand
Join together one in one, Color, child, and man
