Why 

Why do we live in a world,

where people are dying on the daily.

Where hijabs are being yanked off of Muslim women.

Where young muslim girls are being killed 

for believing in a religion,

when the goddamn constitution gives her that right. 

Why do we live in a world with so much hate. 

Where police officers are killing black men,

but not receiving proper repercussions. 

Where “all lives matter”,

but not when it comes to black people.

Where white women are constantly stealing from black women,

but get mad when they are called out.

Why do we live in a world 

where corruption is rampant,

and politicians work for themselves and not others.

Where a man that tells stories of rape

becomes the president. 

And it is dismissed as locker room talk.

Why do we live in a world that inspires hate instead of love?

Why do we live in a world that preaches about liberty and justice,

but doesn’t stand for either of those?
