Enslaved to The Land

Mon, 04/11/2016 - 19:08 -- Elliana

There is a lot of cruelty in this land

It is time for us to take a stand

People are judged based on the color of their skin

There thrown into detention centers

And can never win

Their sent back to their homeland

Where they have to start all over again

Their families can’t bare to watch them go

Right now it is Racism running the show

It is time for this end

We must bring peace across the land

See through your heart

Not your eyes

Let the good part of you rise

Love your neighbor as yourself

Always be willing to help

A positive mindset will help us see

That not everyone is as bad as can be

This world will only get better

If we all work together
