Emancipation! Emancipation!! We chant as we crowd the street
We want liberty, we need our space.
We shout our heart out hoping they would hear
We are black and that’s who we are!
With rage in our hearts tears in our eyes
We beg in anger we seek in arms our freedom.
In the quiet street of our silence
We are waiting for your answer and we swear we won’t speak again.
Pull down trump’s wall
And we won’t ask for more.
These are not stunts of war but a cry for peace
Cut through the veil that blinds the eye
The vail that tears humans apart.
For once be color blind
This is not a poem
This is a song
We chorus our pains in loud chants
From verse to verse
With each note, we play,
We pray we hit a nerve.
No clubs, no burning touches just words.
