A Message to the Government
A Poem About the United States Government's Ignorance on Systemic Racism.
I wrote this poem approximately one year ago, in 2020, right after my town's Black Lives Matter Protest.
A message to the Government, and anyone that sees,
Why do you ignore our pleas?
We’ve taken to the streets chanting,
“No Justice, No Peace”
In hopes of one day seeing that all “men” are free.
Why is it so difficult to understand;
That we’re asking for your hand?
To make this world a better place.
We’re received with anger from our pleas;
When all we’re doing is peacefully protesting in the streets.
I could go on.
What is so wrong with us wanting to fix your wrongs?
The Younger Generations
We won’t stop fighting until there’s justice.
We will and we can;
Make this world a better place.
Even if you refuse to lend a hand.
