Two poems by a High School Student Inspired by BAsics 5:7 and 5:8
Two poems written and performed at Anti-July 4th event by a high school student inspired by BAsics 5:7 and BAsics 5:8
What is made manifest is the walls that bleed red,
inhumanity in living in desolate corners
of the earth, is displayed in miserable statistics
and dollar signs.
Part 1- Rose in Concrete
The brutalized section of society,
have single weeds growing out of concrete
Rusty old school fences with chewed up textbooks,
Learning only that life is meant for oppression,
Getting beat into the heads, scolding superiority by skin head racist pig police, loving to devour the youth.
The only beauty lies in the rose in concrete,
amid the struggle, lies incessant hope of better days
amid the hope, lies resentment, boiling anger, overflowing.
