I’m waiting
Waiting for a time where girls can walk around at night and be safe
Where they’ll be safe to wear whatever they want to wear
I’m waiting for a time where youth won’t drop out of school to sit in corners rolling weed
A time where poverty won’t be a choice, a time where black youth will break out of the system.
A time where fathers won’t prey on their own children
A time where girls can be safe at the post office
A time where justice will be justified.
A time where police officers will be useful and catch criminals, instead of hiding behind their uniforms to hide their own criminal activities.
A time where husbands won’t leave their devoted wives at home to sleep with girls old enough to be their own daughters.
A time where your future won’t be determined by your skin color
