Poems about Race

I cannot help but think why color even mattered in the first place Close your eyes and we are all the same
5 AM tossing and turning Watching as my eyes are closed the things they fought for The words they spoke
I believe in the equality of color, race, and skin I believe in the ability
Discrimination has always been wrong Thats why today it is gone We all were given a right to us
They walked and walked and walked. With bruised feet, they walked. With bruised souls, they walked. With bruised hearts, they walked.
They walked and walked and walked. With bruised feet, they walked. With bruised souls, they walked. With bruised hearts, they walked.
Everything was separate, The fountains, the schools, The tables, the buses, Nothing was left untouched,
They came to America on a multitude of ships, Bound in captivity by iron shackles and chains.
We are not subjects of anyone’s humiliations We are not followers of any injustice
They say that words won't break a man And names won't color your life and place. But we belong to greater things.
