Okay so there’s a little boy
you probably know him.
everyone ignores him.
give him what he wants so
he’ll just shut up
but the thing is
he’s calling for them
they are flying away from him.
and you see it
you see them flying away from him
you want to help him out.
but don’t really know if he wants YOUR help
He’s also scared.
He scared of himself.
He’s not aware of his capability
No one wants to be associated with him
even his own family
He’s so small
But already in a world where everyone is flying away
and thats how he feels
“he’s born in a confused world because he is black”
is what someone said
another one said
“we gotta protect him cause he’s black”
the question is who’s gonna do it
if everyone feels like flying away
and if everyone makes him feel like flying away
“they are after him cause he’s black”
well, who’s after him?
shouldn’t we be after him?
