ONE LAST CALL FOR FREEDOM (IN MEMORY OF GEORGE FLOYD ) WRITTEN BY TONY FERNANDEZ

ONE LAST CALL FOR FREEDOM (IN MEMORY OF GEORGE FLOYD AND OUR MANY SONS AND DAUGHTERS WHO HAVE LOST THEIR LIFE)

We have lost the breath of so many souls,

To the repeated gunshots of racial stories,

Our spirits choked,

By the poisonous claws from false faces.

We have lost the breath from beautiful hearts,

hearts that were born to paint life with wonderful lines.

We may not have a white face,

Or the inherent privilege from chosen walls

But we shall breathe,

Into the freedom of a new tomorrow,

Embraced with the spirit from our forefathers.

And so from Kentucky to New York,

From Los Angeles to Chicago,

From Pittsburgh to Baltimore

From Georgia to Missouri

AND FROM MINNESOTA to the untold stories that never made it to see the light

THE UNTOLD GLORY that never MADE IT TO BREATHE

Our  Journey will continue

For the fists from your gunshots might stain the shades of each city

BUT WE SHALL BREATHE – Into the stories of TOLD FREEDOM
