My life
matters.
I should not have to tell you so.

My life
matters.
Why is this something you don’t know?

My voice
matters.
I am not going anywhere.

My voice
matters.
I will not give in to your fear.

My child
matters.
I need your help to keep him safe.

My child
matters.
She cannot grow in fearful space.

My skin
matters.
It dictates what you think of me.

My skin
matters.
I am who God made me to be.

My hope
matters.
It keeps my spark of love alive.

My hope
matters.
It needs community to thrive.

My life
matters.
My feet belong upon this earth.

My life
matters.
I should not have to prove my worth.

This time
matters.
I need you to stand up with me.

This time
matters.
If some are bound then none are free.
If some are bound then none are free.
If some are bound then none are free.
