Poetry Corner: Taken By Hate

Walking down the street day or night,

Without staring eyes in any let alone my own neighborhood,

I can’t relate.

Unnecessary gestures stopped and thrown to the ground because the skin I’m in

Our worldly sin,

Opposed by politicians and presidents who were Klu Klux Klan.

Committing crimes some as worse as treason,

A bitter and dark feeling for no apparent reason,

And no time for the non existence racial debates when our leaders suffer death as fate.

Killed with no repercussion,

Slaughtered by the masses like beef or lamb,

Inequality is real,

Murdered on camera.

No justice served,

But I gotta remember for 400 years,

We’ve only been 3/5 of a man.
