#BLM

I'll Try

March 9, 2021

Our world is a place,
Where segregation is because of a face,
Brown, yellow, black and white,
How can just one be right?


Our world is at a time,
Where some police are being the crime*,

And we no longer care,
Who we trample, as long as we get there.

Our world is at a year,
Where rulers rule by fear,
And white = perfect,
And perfect people must have all the respect.

Our world is falling apart,
No wonder; it no longer has a heart,

So we need to take a stand,
Take my hand, and I'll try to understand.
*This is a reference to the police officers that have killed African-Americans. I mean no disrespect against the police, they are selfless people who dedicate their lives to keeping us safe. I am only talking about the police who have not upheld their code.

    Wow! This was so well-written and I definitely agree! My two favorite lines are the "how can just one be right?" and "where some police are being the crime" because they're just so powerful and I really love your use of bolding!!

    race is a HUGE social construct and the fact that it is is SO overlooked
