What Happened to the Dream

MLK had a dream
That dream is all but dead
Tamir gets no justice
Just like Trayvon
Or, as of yet,
Freddie Gray
We haven’t overcome
I appreciate
Being a brown girl
In law school
Educated
With opportunities
But my heart
It still hurts
It’s hard
We’ve come a ways
But
So much further to go
I
Can’t even
Say all I want
Express all I feel
It’s a shame
A travesty
We can’t even heal
I grieve
Mourning
When will it end
When will
Delusions and dreams
Become reality
What happened
What happened
What happened
What happened
To the dream
