Justice for All
everybody is protesting
in the street
they want justice for George Floyd
when he was killed by a police officer's knee
justice seems to want to come,
only for a few, but not for some.
I heard the sounds of those victims who cried
but, there will be no peace for the unjust who have died
when racial tensions come alive
we will all begin to arise
the law has neglected him
but it will be God that shall protect them
we want justice for Breonna Taylor, but
it seems to take too long
but the protesting will not stop for her
and we'll continue to keep marching on
justice seems to want to come, but
it comes fast for a few and
not at all for some,
we want justice for
because he didn't deserve to die
and we will keep fighting and protesting
in his name
until they hear our cry
