Maybe your life was taken

To awaken a nation

To look itself in the mirror

and discover it flaws

To see beyond its on reflection

Pain and hatred

Maybe your last breath

was a fresh meaning to a new movement

I can't breathe has united a spark

few could have imagine

Black and white unity

Justice for you

Your daughter

Proud to call you daddy

George Floyd

George floyd

Lie on a pavement

face down

His life snuffed out him

By a kneeling knee

One that wouldn't let him breathe

Four hundred years of the same


Aflicted again and again

To get off our chest


Death and mourning

A new day arriving with promise

That black lives matter

You George is the voice

of this change

I Can't Breathe

A lasting statement

heard across the world

Watch by millions in disbelief

Police brutality at it worst

8 minutes of agonizing trauma

I can't breathe

A scream for help

A call to momma

Forever staining a nation
