A Louder Voice

By Dillon Ollivierre and Sherika George

Cellular phones, tablets, television
Sadly, they refuse to embrace technology to educate our nation

How many more graves?
Before we address this crime wave
How many more of our youths must die?
Before we declare “this crime wave needs to end?”
How many more must emotionally suffer and die?
Before our voice transcend

You! Yes you! Your voice is urgently needed
For today history will be created
Today our youths will rise up
Today we will stand up
Today we will make it known
That the issue of crime and violence will not destroy our home

Youths -- today we will march through the street
Chanting words of freedom, today we take it to the street
Hance John, today is your day to write
Fireman, Skinny, Maddzart, Recka, Icon, today we must unite
Tamisha, Zola, Shaunelle, Tabia, Rashyda, Tenicia, Megan, Zonecia
Shine forth your light
Use your talent to conquer the enemy
That which tries to destroy our country
Colin Peters, Enos, Seon, Gideon, Abuza, Yaphatoo, Mattafix
Musicans, DJs, poets, local icons, today the problem we must fix
Rashida, Calvert, VIP PIX, Vagueiimages, Cloud Island Media
Today we must unite for a brighter tomorrow

Today -- youths regardless of your talent, skill or profession
We must tackle this issue with great determination
