Black Lives Matter?

Black lives matter?

Well of course they do

Same with Native American, Mexican,

Japanese and Korean too.

Though to this thinking

there's a small blight

I guess I don't matter

because I'm white

Yes, I know

Traditionally, we "rule"

But I am to be punished

because my ancestors were fools?

Never has skin

made any difference to me

But I face hate

Now they're against me

I don't understand

What I've done wrong

I just want a world

Where everyone belongs

Please let me know

Please let me see

I've never hated you

Why do you hate me?

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
My country
Our world
