I Do Not Care
This poem was written about and incident where a white cop shot a 10 year old black boy, he was found innocent even though everyone knew he did it. In class we had to write from any point of view and I chose the point of view of the cop.
And with this gun inside my hand,
A crime not done, I do not care,
Those eyes so mocking, deep and dark,
This colors bad, I have been taught.
Not age, nor height I don’t take in,
