Equality Games

Let’s stop comparing tragedies.
One killing isn’t worse than
another killing because a life is
still lost and a murder is still unsolved.

No one’s pain is worse than the
others as we’re comparing the
same things across the nation not
worrying that legislation is nowhere in sight.

We know what’s wrong and what’s right.
But we’re too busy worried about justifying a piece of paper
written by white men who owned slaves.

This is the America that certain people praise.
But every time someone preaches progress,
I’m not fazed.
Because until we care about everyone’s plight
there is not justice for anyone in sight.

“If protesting didn’t work they wouldn’t have poured tea in the Boston Harbor.
