Charlottesville

Look at the faces of hate

Stare into the eyes of chosen ignorance

Look at the faces of the lost in fear.

Now, tell me again that racism is dead!

.

Look at the faces of the bereaved families.

Stare into the eyes of pain and loss

Look at the faces of trauma

Now tell me again that racism is dead!

.

Look at the faces of supremacy.

Stare into the eyes of white privilege

Look at the faces of selfish fragility

Now tell me again that racism is dead!!

.

White people!!

Arise from the ashes of your people’s indoctrination!

Rise to the heights of nobility that can only be found in your humility!

Lift yourself out of the cesspool of hate!

And tell me again that racism is dead!!

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
