Poetry Slam: The Hate U Give (THUG) Scholarship Slam — CLOSEDThis poem is about: My countryOur world Comments Login or register to post a comment. dendenyu 2 years ago My piece illustrates the relationship between a mother and her children. Young children are especially dependent on their parents and the lack of guidance from the people they love and rely on can have a severe impact on how they grow up. In the The United States, the forced separation of undocumented children from their parents is a cruel, unjustified and absolutely not what the country is meant to signify. In my illustration, I wanted to portray how pulling away a mother from her children creates a domino effect that will pull those abandoned children into darkness.
