The Glow Up of a Marginalized Mind

Prepubescent face,

With eyes judging the world. 

It becomes clear to him a life in which hate

relates to the minds of many.

A glow up from “When will we get there?” to

“When will political leaders own up to their

mistakes and change for the better?” 


It is the glow up of a Marginalized Mind, 

it is seeing 16 year old Carlos Gregorio

Hernandez Vasquez die under border customs, 

during which real Americans turn a cold shoulder. 

Confused by the intricacies of equality, 

he grows. 


He grows and glows to shout and alarm until his 

fight is over and 

his right is heard.
