Can We Learn Again?

Filed under: Poetry, Uncategorized — migueltio @ 8:18 pm

We used to think that one color over another color

was superior.

We used to think that other colors to our color

were inferior.

 

Time was when another color

had to sit in the back,

had to pick up the slack,

had to drink from the fountain

with the great big crack.

 

After some time passed

it seemed we came to

our senses we seemed like

had stopped the racial

offenses, tearing down our

highly segregated

barbed wire fences.

 

The lessons we seemed to have learned

after many neighborhoods were burned

made it seem as if we had turned

away from the hatred that had perpetually churned.

 

Now in these times many seem re-divided

as what they portray and what they say,

come out of mouths two sided,

racial

cultural

and religious differences

seem to have once again

collided,

hopefully in time,

once again,

lessons will be learned so that before too many

new fires have destructively burned,

this new wave of hate,

causing many

again

to demonstrate,

will have peacefully subsided.
