    Will you please tell me some facts about you because I love your We are family poem. I want to use it in my school presentation since it is poetry month but I need facts about the author. If you could tell me interesting facts or something about yourself I would really appreciate it.

Best Poem of Michael J. Burt

We Are Family

we are family,
although we do not resemble
although i am black and you are white
although you are rich and i am poor

we are family,
even though i am democrat, and you are republican
even though your ancestors are from Iraq, and mine are from Africa
even though you teach the class i'm enrolled in

we are family,
although i'm a poet and you are a singer
although you are old and i am young
although i'm a gentleman and you a lady

we are family,
even though you praise Allah and I praise Jesus Christ
even though i love football and you play...

Read the full of We Are Family


i'm taking a gamble,
letting you into my experiences
letting you into my deep thoughts
letting you into my heart

yes, i'm taking a gamble,
you can respect my words
but hate my message
you can smile in my face
