Racism Is Around Me Everywhere

Of human ignorance I am almost in despair
For racism is around me everywhere
But like they say sheer ignorance is bliss
Just like Judas betrayed Jesus with a kiss.

Some people carry their honour in a flag
And of their Nationality they brag
They feel superior and they differentiate
And against those who are different they discriminate.

So many people still judged by their race
For such there never ought to be a place
'A fair go' those untruthful words I do recall
There is no such a thing as a 'fair go for all'.

Though we live in a so called democracy
Of racism we never will be free
They judge you by where you come from and the colour of your skin
For many equality and respect seems impossible to win.

It's been awhile since the days of Martin Luther King
His name to it has a familiar ring
If against racism he did not choose to strive
Today the great man he would be alive.

So many holding the reins of power not spiritually aware
And racism is around me everywhere
And racism only leads to division and war
Just goes to show how ignorant some are.

Poetry is not only for describing the beauty of the moon and the taste of love, it’s also there to highlight the issues of the community we live in and raise awareness about their effects. Racism and discrimination are an example of these problems that can cause a lot of damage to both individuals and communities. Many popular poets have written poems about the pervasive negative effects of racism in our communities such as; "Caged Bird" by Maya Angelou, "Rosa" by Rita Dove, and "Immigrant Blues" by Li-Young Lee.
