Now that I have your attention

now that you care

Let me show you all the black lives that aren’t there

Children scarred and scared

Living a life that just isn’t fair

Now that I got your attention now that you care

See all children who aren’t there

Gunned down while reciting their ABC

Is this the reality I really see

Now that I have your attention

Can you admit to your detention

Lives are gone let’s not mention

The children of the world who haven’t been mentioned

Now that I have your attention not that you care

I have one question

Why weren’t you there?
