Justice or Else!

Samuel Malik Canty: the Word Bird. I am the author of Five Poetry Books, I understand my Purpose, and my words are my proof...

justice-or-else

The people are coming:

It was in their eyes…Fire…Anger…Determination to shake up this Nation…

Every footstep was a testimony of Unified Strength walking towards a Common goal of being heard, being Seen…

They were tired of Living a Nightmare and wanted one of the Dreams of Martin Luther King to become a reality in their lifetime…

Their eyes carried the Fire and the Spirits of the Unjust, of the Victims of Brutality and Senseless Crimes that boggled the mind…

​Their faces didn’t come to entertain, they came to break some chains that should have long ago been broken, to break some traditions that led to some of these dreadful conditions…

They came to express their Unified Feelings about Justice or Else!

They came to send a Unified message that Change is needed now…Not Tomorrow, Not Later, NOW!

Walking with the blessings of their Ancestors in every step, with the Blessing of every victim that didn’t make a headline, didn’t make the news…

This time Justice or Else had a Unified Voice, a United Voice that was tired of Promises that were never going to be fulfilled…

Tired of Waiting for God-Given-Rights to be given also to them…

This time Justice or Else stood out like a wave and the Eyes of the World would take notice…

This time the Fires of discontent would be given Center Stage and allowed to express the grievances, the disdain and anger of the people.

Justice or Else! Said the Red Nation…

Justice or Else! …Said the Black and Brown Nations…

Justice or else! Said the Oppressed, the Victims of Brutality, the Invisible Nations within this Nation…

The People are coming and this time the War Cry will be unified as the oppressed tribes of Humanity take Center Stage and they are not afraid…

Justice or Else! So much more than a Slogan…

As of these words some of the Children of tomorrow have decided to take matters in their own hands...

As of these words some cities are burning because Justice has been a no show for to long...

As of these words shots are being unleashed without provocation and justification,

sending people to the streets with anger in every step...

As of these words indifference and racist behavior and actions are the only one receiving satisfaction...

Justice or Else! the words will not fade away, be brutalize away or taken away by Laws that have flaws or people who refuse to see the humanity of others.

The words will continue to circulate and percolate until they are achieved and allowed to be received by all who need...

Justice or Else!!!
