Burdens A Burden - Poem by Shannon Snyder

Burdens a burden
The black man’s brow drooping down
Full with anger and hate
His wail with laughter drown
This war will never end

Burdens a burden
The brown man wants to be free
Stronger than the black
But weaker than the white
He will never win his fight

Burdens a burden
The white man rules all
Stepped down to defend his honor
Independent haul
Blinded by glory
He sees not what wrongs

Burdens a burden
The profit that all are equal not seen with innocent eyes
The brown more than black
The white more than black
The stone is set in time
And you can’t turn back what has progressed the rest
