Protest for George Floyd

George Floyd – Victim of in-humanitarian act

Handcuffed.
Face down.
Knee on his neck.
They did nothing.

He called the officer “sir.”
They did nothing.


He begged for his life.
He begged for water.
He begged for mercy.
They did nothing.

His nose bled.
His body trembled.
He lost control of his bladder.
They did nothing.

He cried out, “I can’t breathe.
They did nothing.
Twelve more times.
“I can’t breathe.”
“I can’t breathe.”
“I can’t breathe.”
“I can’t breathe.”
“I can’t breathe.”
“I can’t breathe.”
“I can’t breathe.”
“I can’t breathe.”
“I can’t breathe.”
“I can’t breathe. “
“I can’t breathe.”
They did nothing.

One last time, he gasped, “I can’t breathe.”
They did nothing.

He lost consciousness.
They did nothing.

A firefighter demanded they check his pulse.
They did nothing.

Off duty medical personal begged them to stop.
They did nothing.

Deprived of oxygen.
His organs screaming.
His brain frantic.
They did nothing.

They watched George Floyd die.
His life fading.
A slow death.
They did nothing.

For eight agonizing minutes.
Four officers watched.
They did nothing.

He cried out for his Mom.
A grown man…
Crying out for the woman who gave him life…
As he feared joining her in death.
And still they did nothing.

A black man.
A gentle giant.
Murdered because he was black.

The officers should be arrested.
And still they’ve done nothing.

May the culture changes to Color, races and gender neutral.

Who are we as human beings if we ignore the suffering of others.. even in the situation of world Pandemic, we fail to understand humanity… whatever’s happening around the globe is disturbing…

Note-Differences due to religion, caste, colour, sex etc. can never define humanity… I pray for kindness and love amongst US…

Without justice and love peace will always be a great illusion ..
