If You Love Me
If you love me, please tell me why I am homeless, hungry, naked, and tattered in the streets?
If you love me, why do you promote policy which denies me healthcare or the medications which support my life?
If you love me, why do you single out the black and brown bodies of America and warehouse them in your for-profit prisons.
If you love me and I am your kindred, why have you left my country a war-torn mess?
If you love me, why have I been sentenced for a crime I did not commit?
If you love me, why have you torn my family apart in the name of immigration reform?
America. Was it not you that said all men are created equal?
America. Do you love me?
