Just because I’m young

Just because I’m black

Just because my intellect

Doesn’t lack

Just because your older

Just because you white

Just because you were there

Doesn’t make it alright

I’m free

I’m boundless

I’m making moves

Yet soundless

So much change will come

When you recognize my plight

I will always come to fight

But with words not a knife

There’s to much life

To end it petty

So use your words, no machete

Just because I’m youthful

Just because I’m diverse

Just because my mind is a plagued curse

Won’t stop the change

The wave of violence will cease

Your speaking about that new name
