"6 Human Needs:
had a nightmare about a mass shooting
found out my mom's school was on lockdown
then woke up living in Amerikkka
from the womb of lady liberty
to the tomb of another victim on tv
may you rest in peace
humanity is born numb
ice cold like the chills down my skin
when he reaches for the gun
and sent souls into kingdom
if hell exists, i hope you relive this sin
because it's not safe
there is no place
that i can call home
i am terrified everywhere i go
blame my mental health
maybe that'll get me a free pass out of jail
however, only if i'm white because
if i'm brown then i'll be divided by a wall
if i'm Muslim then i'll be sure to kill us all
we are prisoners to the system
and relive the nightmare
until the day drips blood
we must free our mind,
demand more protection, more policy
and co-create our peaceful realities
in hope that every victim
rises from our nation's shortfalls"
