You matter, I matter, everyone matters
Words that are so simple to read
Yet to difficult to comprehend.
For those who sit at the priviledge’s bench
How can you say that we value less?
We don’t value more, we’re all equal
Not indocumented, we’re legal
Legal to have a life, to live in a place
To learn new cultures, to make new friends.
You want to trust in people the same way as I do
Because your life matters, and mine too.
We see the same scenery, all over again
Same rages, protesters and only one question
Will all of this still be in vain?
Will cease to exist sense of communication?
He’s white, you’re black and I’m a mix of two
When will we learn that our best weapon is an “I love you”?
It’s our fault to let others take our dignity
Knowing that they’ll wipe away, all of our identity
But you matter, I matter, everyone matters
As long as there’s love and respect
There’s one thing we should defend
The lives of the people, and find justice
For those who have fallen, and went to heaven.
I matter, you matter, he matters, she matters, we matter, they matter.
No matter the color, language, gender, or ethnicity
