I Am Michael Brown

A Poem by Evan Wheeler of Philadelphia, PA

Tears are running down my mother’s face
Police call saying I was gunned down for a trumped up case
My fears became a reality I was killed because of my race
One thing for sure two things for certain people don’t frown
Even though I am gone six feet in the ground
My voice continues to spread they can’t ignore the sound
I am black & I am proud I am Michael Brown
