I Can't Breathe

By CJ Reeves, Army

Writing Type: Poem

By CJ Reeves
VA Medical Center--San Francisco, CA

I can't
Gasp for air
Masks smother
I can't breathe
Knee on neck
Let me up
I am somebody
Not nobody
Say it loud
I am somebody
I can't breathe
Mask too tight 
Let me go
Constricting
I can't breathe
On so tight
Knee on neck
Can't exhale
Let me breathe
I am somebody
Don't hit me
No hitman
Family man
Say it loud
Black man, yo
I am proud
Colored man
Don't hit me--say it loud
I can't 
Don't shoot me
Let me breathe
Say it loud
I am MLK
I have a dream
I can't breathe
I am BLM
Choking me
Knee on neck
I am Gandhi
Resistance--say it loud
Satyagraha
Gasp for air
Let me breathe
Say it proud
I am somebody 
A good man
Do no harm
I have a dream
Satyagraha
Say it loud
I am black
I am white--all unite
Lives matter
I matter
Don't smother
Let me 
Say it loud
Satyagraha
I am somebody
Father, son
Brother, too
Say it loud
I am somebody
Gasp for air
Let me breathe
Say it loud
I am somebody--say it proud
All lives matter
My life matters
I am the world
Satyagraha  
Knee on neck--say it loud
I am somebody
Bin Deutscher
Kann nicht atmen
Help me breathe
I am somebody
Life matters.
