Poems about Race

From the beginning, We were made equal. In the past, they didn't see t That we were made equal
Have you ever been sprayed? Sprayed with iniquity Sprayed with hatred Sprayed with your identity
"All men are created equal" is what they say we are all free but were not the same
The silent tears go unheard The biggest fears come at night Others choose to standby While others choose to fight
Like that ugly duckling we all learned about, Brought up and filled with inklings of doubt,
Color of the skin Neither lose nor win This wasn’t about triumph Nor david verse goliath
There shall be equality There shall be a world of equal opportunities Among blacks and whites
It is because of that day in 1963 that blacks are capable of rising above all.
Do you know what year it is? What century we’re in? You say racism is gone You say we all have rights
Black- much more than a color. It represents an entire race. A feeling of pride and honor, humility and grace.
