A poem by pupils from George Mitchell School inspired by Benjamin Zephaniah, 'What has Stephen Lawrence taught us?'

Justice justice.
I can’t fight alone,
I can’t rid this pain.

Justice justice.
I need help.

Justice justice.
Please stop the rain.
Xenophobia is not an option,
According to the law.
But we see it today, we see it in history.
Think of Stephen Lawrence, Rosa Parks and millions more.
This is not fair. People need care.
There shouldn’t be racism, there shouldn’t be treason.
Stop the subversion.

Justice justice.
I can’t fight alone,
I can’t rid this pain.

Justice justice.
I need help.

Justice justice.
Please stop the rain.
Why are people segregated from each other?
And kids around the world separated from their mother?
Is it worth the killing?
Bruising and blood spilling?
People are dying
People are crying
Newspapers are lying.

Justice justice.
I want justice.
I want support from the world around.
I cannot bear the pain of my sorrows anymore.

Justice justice.
I can’t fight alone,
I can’t rid this pain.

Justice justice.
I need help.

Justice justice.
Let us unite.

Justice justice.
Let’s put up a global FIGHT!
