We Claim

By SecretFlame, Portland, OR

We claim that this is the twenty-century,
and that everything has been modernized,
That people’s attitudes have changed,
We claim that sexism has been eradicated,
and discrimination abolished,
This is the age of equality,
And everyone is shown fairness.

If we claim that life has been modernized,
Then why do I see poverty,
Surrounding me,
Not just in alleys, or other countries,
But in our own country,
Our home.
People jobless,
And living off welfare,
With no place to call their own.

Since everyone’s attitudes have changed,
Why do I see bullying?
People judged on clothing, hair, shoes, athletics, and “popularity”.

AMEN, AMEN, AMEN. PREACH AND TESTIFY! I ask myself all these questions over and over again everyday, especially since I come from minorities.
