Duty Calls

I live in a world that makes it difficult

to see two White police officers questioning a young Black boy,

and believe they’re just ‘doing their job’.

Yet we all just stared as the train pulled away.

Wondering what will take place next on that platform.

Praying another life doesn’t turn into a hashtag

from our silence.
