Dear Mr King,

Blue was the color of your sky

Beyond the Promised land,

Tell me why a blue wave of fear

Still darkens my mind when i am outside now?

Pearly white was the purity of your Dream

That you believed in,

Now the protection of my rights

Is yellowed by the white coldness of injustice.


Red was the color of passion

that you gave deadly to us,

From Selma to Ferguson

The same blood is on the ground.

No matter the values

That we fight for

Trayvon was our brother

Not a color.
