Poetry #5: “Coexisting Pains”

Violence

Just one word but it has so much meaning

And causes so much trouble.

 

Racism

Just one word but it has so much meaning

And is so hurtful.

 

Together these words cause pain

And right now my black people are suffering.

 

When will it end?

When violence and racism no longer coexist

 

The time here

The time is now

And it begins with us.

 

Coffee refills on us!
