We Live

We live in a world where we still get judged on the color of our skin,

And people don't even bother to notice what is within.

We live in a generation where we are stuck behind a phone screen, 

and som of us still don't understand what "Put your phones up" means.

We live in a society where self expression often leads to judgement,

Causing our personalities to make an adjustment.

We live in a time where crime and technology are eating us alive,

And all we can do is try to survive.

But I say it is time for us to make a change,

Because this world that we live in needs to rearrange.

This poem is about: 
My community
My country
Our world
