Whose Dream (doUhave)?


yeah, i hear you
talkin about MLK
on your FB post

gotta ask ’cause
gotta know
:
whose dream
(doUhave)?

with white privilege
masking racism
name-calling
whose fear
(ruliving)?

status quo
protects my white ass
keeps me safe
keeps me from asking
scary questions

i fight myself 2c
worlds i never lived
hatreds i never felt
injustice against skin

foolish stupid me
empty rebel rebel
naive and hopeful
when the dream
needs so much more
