We Can't Breathe

Raeha Khazanchi, 11

We can’t breathe
Why can’t we breathe?
Because he can’t breathe
Why can’t he breathe?
Because his breath was stolen from his body

We are not treated equally
Why are we not treated equally?
Because he was not treated equally
Why was he not treated equally?
Because this a world where your color of skin matters

We are hungry
Why are we hungry?
Because he is hungry
What are we and him hungry for?
We and him are hungry for justice.
