Our Silent Cries Speak Soliloquy

by Caeli McKamey

end racism

Vision-less negligence shackles my birth

Systemic diversity layered deceit distorted inclusivity

Blind prison sentences sleeping awareness no want for future

I sat in the cell you created to punish our souls

Learning the ways of the mute irate mistakes wrongly incriminated

Your response will be written in the black books hidden in our coffins

A selective history we live to tear from textbooks and voiceless libraries

Color-blind mental slaves watched and rewatched my death

Malevolent murderer’s glee created from lineages of lynching

Your white grip still bleeds a chain around my neck

I can feel the bigoted inferno that flames my souls

I replay my beg, my plea, my bow to the cement for your mercy, for my life

“Please don’t kill me”, echoes abound the creatures of limbo

The stairs to peace unveils the dead, taken by the system

A timeless 8 minutes and 46 seconds in the living souls

Their silent cries break mountains in the afterlife

Rev. George Lee, Lamar Smith, Emmett Louis Till, Willie Edwards Jr., Herbert Lee, Cpl. Roman Ducksworth Jr., Medgar Evers, Louis Allen, Virgil Lamar Ware, Jimmie Lee Jackson, Ben Chester White, Wharlest Jackson, Benjamin Brown, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., 

Their silent cries must be vocalized vibrating through all streams of consciousness

Skin to skin, my coal to the cement fades into your white paste and I am nothing

The power that society has given you has shown your evil, choose wisely who protects us and find how to educate the protection

We will not let your people lock us in your extermination badge

We will not let our people continue to be imprisoned in your slow, deliberate, lifetime extinction of life

I watch from the fog the cities uniting for life to open your eyes as you rot in prison

We need systems, anarchy realized structure is necessary provided survival is peaceful

Dehumanization

You stole my life and my humanity…Where is the human in you?

I am heading to the white clouds which I will murk with the grey thunder

The rain will pour on your faces as you march until you realize the inferiority that still needs your attention

We must not fire with fire, Dr King tells me from heaven

We must show them our power by peace and navigate the system to ensure that Black Lives Matter

Dr.King speaks from heaven, our death is not inconsequential, it is powerful to seek the Dr.King of the 21st century.

Stand up my friend and lead our way to structural peace for all.

I am George Floyd and I matter. Our cries will no longer be silenced.
