Racism In Poetry - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

-->

Prejudice cannot be hidden,
Arrogance for the color of skin.
Its ugly head is here again
Racism is lurking within.

Disguised as mere poetry
Seething hatred shouts,
Name calling carelessly-
Gangrene inside out.

Our blood is all red-colored
Our hearts all colored rainbow,
Racist poems you authored
Your character, they show.

I was not brought up to be mean,
To racism I am not bent,
If that's where you have been
It's such a waste of your talent.





'A man of knowledge uses words with restraint, a man of understanding is even-tempered.'

Proverbs 17: 27

'Wise men store up knowledge, but the mouth of a fool invites ruin.'
Proverbs 10: 14

    Words that can be perceived,
    As thoughts of one in jealous anger.
    However...those with 'vision' see.
    And your poem depicts an existence of it.
