And if my tears were raindrops they would fill up a cup 2019 marked a milestone 400 years to the day they say black folks were put in chains tears for my Family struggle just to live and be in 2020 who would believe the crimes against Humanity the cries of my Ancestors ringing out from the grave and how will you be remembered in 2020 for it has been written The Lord counts all of Her tears that Lade of Liberty is wiping Her eyes through the tears of our Fight For Healing Justice Denied and still I cried tears of joy In Love for those who stand up for Healing Justice I know my tears allow me to forgive from the Heart of My Tears.
