Whose Dream (doUhave)?

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

gotta ask ’cause
gotta know
whose dream

with white privilege
masking racism
whose fear

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
