I grieve

  1. I'm not black.
  2. But I grieve.
  3. I'm not white.
  4. But I grieve.
  5. I'm not a witness.
  6. But I grieve.
  7. I'm not a victim.
  8. But I grieve.
  9. I'm not sure what to say.
  10. But I grieve.
  11. In pain, I listen to those who have lost loved ones.
  12. In fear, I watch as society allows for brutality to continue.
  13. In anger, I realize I'm useless.
  14. So I grieve.
  15. I'm sorry Alton Sterling. I'm sorry Philando Castile. I'm sorry to all the others who were murdered by the people who were supposed to protect them.
