“Push.”

Push.

Shove.

Break Through

Deal with the hatred

But keep pushing.

Pushing is how you got here….

Pushed from your mother’s womb…

Breaking through to life…

Breathe.

Confusion breaks like a gray cloud over the city,

But you push on

And those that don’t understand

Say they do

But they never can

And you push on.

On the ground,

Cattle call

Sounds familiar as history recalls

Gathered off and carted off

Your anger has teeth.

FearLeadsToAngerLeadsToHateLeadsToViolenceLeadsToFear

The cycle

Perpetuates

Systemic

Failure.

Those that control

Are not controlled

And change must come

If pushing leads to break through

If breaking through

Changes history

That has yet to be made…

They look down from their podiums

Wide-eyed and afraid

Afraid not just of you

But of the truth you represent

Of the truth that you

Push

Past

Their

Borders.

Telling the truth means

Changing the game

And opening the doors

To the Boys’ Club

Don’tAskDon’tTellYouDidn’tSeeAnythingBut

I

Can’t

Breathe.

Push.

Shove.

Break Through.

I stand in unity.

I stand for change.

I stand for peace…and I stand for

Conversation.

Action.

Answers.

I cannot understand,

But I will listen to you…

I will push with you.

Change WILL come.
