I CAN’T BREATHE!!


Everyone take a knee
The black national anthem plays in the background
Lift Every voice…
They did it again…
Knee in his neck, This a modern day lynching!
We can’t win,
We suffocating in discrimination,
Protesting, and demonstrating.
Black skin, approached by the police leads to death, or prison…
It seems like we ain’t gaining nothing,
They did it again!!!
A nigga can’t breathe in this racist ass system.
Cops killed a nigga after they cuffed him!
He white he go to trial and win, I’m black I lose?..
The Black National Anthem Plays…
Lift every voice…
I Can’t Breathe!!!
We’re being policed by fools, with hatred in their hearts’.
I can’t Breathe!
Because he wrapped his arms’ around my neck
They’re choking niggas to death…
Eric Gardner…
If I object, I’m killed…
My people protest…
and still, another nigga killed,
the same way
George Floyd!!!
Take a knee, for the Black National Anthem…
We can’t breathe!
Every time I leave the crib my mom paranoid for (her baby boy)
“Watch out for those KKK boys…in blue.”
They Extreme???
They stifling our dreams…
BLACK MEN…
LIFT EVERY VOICE AND SING…
I can’t Breathe!
Societal discord when we take a knee…
If we protest, they say we lootin’
A social unrest they start shootin’
A peaceful demonstration
“Sit-in” the police station,
with our guns out, screaming our lungs out:
“I can’t Breathe!!!”
The Black National Anthem!
This cell so small, its strangling a nigga…
Prosecutor married to the stenographer…
They worked it on a nigga…
Racist system, put him in prison.
He black…
He ain’t smart enough to notice what’s missin’
But, I peeped it.
Since I am short of breath
My words’ have no spark…
without video footage
everything is kept it in the dark.
So, I can’t win…
no protest
no demonstrating,
because I’m in prison
Without the video the world would never be able to see that:
“I CAN’T BREATHE”
LIFT EVERY VOICE AND SCREAM
I CAN’T BREATHE!!!

My name is Kory McClary, I am 34 years old. I am currently serving a lengthy sentence at the New Jersey State prison in Trenton, New Jersey. I am fighting for my freedom so that I may return to my family and loved ones. Yet, I know that it is a long, tough, and bitter battle to achieve that goal. But, with the grace of God Almighty, and for the sake of my family, I will fight on. I am using this blog as a medium to enhance my voice and to bring awareness to my unfair condition leading out of my unjust conviction. While spending almost all of my time in a cell, I chose to write so that I may voice the reality of my situation, because without awareness there can never be Justice...! To escape the harsh reality of prison, I use the pen to release my frustrations. I use the pen to manifest my imagination. And, most of all, I use the pen to Fight. I am fighting for my Life! Just by reading Kory McClary's Blog, you are giving my plight and my word's a voice. Thank you. Please, stay tuned...
