"A Poem of Truth"

Carr Lane VPA Middle School

This is a poetry writing of love 
Not hate
Our world is an unstable place
People are judging each other 
By the color of their skin 
And the religion of their race 
Our black men are turning our community 
Into a place of gang banging 
And drug slanging 
It’s like our world 
Is taking its time to learn the basics 
There are people
Who are trying 
To make the world a better place 
Despite the others 
Who don’t want to do anything 
But take up space
