We Need a Holiday

We need a holiday 
One free from remembering 
pain
I'm tired of remembering the 
fallen
People dying for no reason
Fighting to achieve equality
We need a holiday 
Free from all that we know
Reminding us of terrorist
Segregation and class 
distinction 
Political leaders taking from the 
poor
We need a holiday 
One that don't remind us death 
of our people
One free of reminding us to 
hold on
One not related to violence
A holiday where everybody 
lives
We need a holiday
One where the poor has 
enough to eat
A job for all
A day where I can walk the 
streets in safety
