A Call to Action for Co-Conspirators

The young woman in the back
Weeps silently, hiding tears
Fearful that someone will kill her
Folks don’t even see her
She is the last one to receive justice-
If ever-
She knows that Black bodies
Are expendable
Yet she had no choice
She was born with beautiful
Dark chocolate skin
A beauty to behold
Yet, she sits there alone
Ignored, forgotten
Watching her sisters get
No justice
So we say, “no justice, no peace”
Stand beside her
Hold her up when her strength is gone
Help her speak out–
Hold the megaphone for her
