this is our time
to not back away
we can’t back away
to not wake up
it’s time to wake up

this time
let this be the last time
that time and that time and that time
again and again
should never have happened
no more please no more

the sadness in me spills over
and i see you, and you, and you
through tears in my eyes
i feel your ache deeper than i can image
for what you have felt
and been dealt
of suffering
discrimination
racism
injustice
violence
ignorance
hatred
and on and on

I am sorry
I am sad
I stand with you
we're in this together
we will not back away
this is the time
