For Daunte Wright

Lost to his future

Stolen from his safety

Sent out to the world

Through his tragic end

Daunte was Wright

In a world gone so wrong

Mother hears final moments

Of a son she loved with

A Grandson to inherit

Mistakes in a past that

Might allow second chances

If humanity hadn’t painted

Them so dark

There’s less laughter now

There’s more rage

There’s another Daunte out there

Growing without a father

To root them in this Earth

To raise them above the hate

They’ll encounter on the way

A child forever bound to their pain

Bindings still, in the cycle of centuries

And a news cycle that will churn it

Every anniversary of his death

Ringing injustice in ears for eternity

Countries bound by fear breed

Accidents that aren’t accidental

Born in a system

That was always going to kill

A child like Daunte
