Skin short poem

Uploaded by Cindy Christmas


I Wish Racism Would Die.

I Wish It Would Go Away,

Because Racism Is Like A Disease, And People Make It Stronger Everyday.

Why Are People Hating Each Other, Because Of The Color Of Their Skin?

To Me, Color Ain’t Important, Because It’s Not How You Look On The Outside, It’s About How You Are Within.

Racism Is Worse Than AIDS, And I Wish I Could Do Something About It,

Because To Me, It Seems Like Racism Will Always Be Permanent.

I Really Wish That Racism Would Go Away And Leave Me Alone.

But Racism Is Everywhere, Even In Your Home.

Sometimes People Hate You Because Someone Of Your Color Did Something To Them.

I Really Wish That One Day Racism Would End.

I Don’t Want Racism To Be Around Forever,

So Can We At Least Try To Like Each Other?

Beneath The Skin

Beneath The Skin short poem

It was not a demigod, elephantiasis of a beast, snakes sitting on head. A catastrophic tree view.I was proud of being alive during carpet-bombing. A catnip was needed to clear the vision. The town was moving out shedding its landmarks.

If only we were bones We wouldn’t throw so many stones Separated by this skin We seem to forget we’re all human Brother killing brother All for their flesh’s color Inequality uncontrolled Because of the lies we’ve all been told
