Best Poem of Samantha Desmond

Tell Yourself Your Beautiful

Tell yourself,
That you love what you are,
Despite the criticism around you,
From the ignorance of the people,
And take a deep breath,
And go on knowing it doesn’t matter.

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,

[Hata Bildir]
