Full Stop

It is time to pay attention

It is time to be aware

Change is blowing on the breeze

We all need to care

It is time to be cognizant

It is time to be conscious

Changes we must demand

But we need to be cautious

It is time to unite

It is time to be one

No more fighting in the streets

Where no one has won

It is time for organized protests

It is time for gentle peace

No more racism run rampant

For it all must now cease
