Discrimination poems

  1. 1. They are waiting for you, just because your different, Your marked for life, get out, you better hurry before they take you and you kids, Don’t make a sound or they’ll find you and your family, Hiding in the cold keeping your children safe, They are waiting for you better get out while you have the chance, You might have a better chance over the fence, You never know what might happen when you disowned, and left in the cold, buying illegal rations to feed your own, Lying in the street trying not to be found, Don’t let them catch you, or they’ll have you head, Just wait till you and you kin are safe
  2. 2. Discrimination is all around us Discrimination is all around the U.S. It make most people mad It can make many people sad Why make people feel rejected by doing such a act Discrimination is a very upsetting act Being a reject isn’t fun Being rejected makes people feel left out In the world we see discrimination against African Americans, Asians, and every one in between Discrimination isn’t has many affects on people Why do people do this?
  3. 3. The way that they are treated really doesn’t make sense Because they are minority it is totally unfair They people that don’t like them it means they must not care It doesn’t matter race or what they choose to follow It is not your business because what does it matter to you They are here because of our freedoms or to escape problems they have We should just except it fighting is going to tear us apart They are no different they just believe in different things Or they look different I don’t see the problem We are destroying are world slowly but surly We could work together to solve are problems but we can’t get along We are all humans and it will always be that way
  4. 4. Everyone should be treated equally It doesn’t matter what your religion is, or the color of your skin Everyone should be treated equally Have a chance to fit in When I think of discrimination I can feel the pain Of the people that was discriminated, and wasn’t treated the same Everyone should be treated equally Be pain free and treated fair Everyone should be treated equally Everyone should share As you can see from my writing I think discrimination is wrong So everyone should be treated equally Everyone should get along
  5. 5. Discrimination Is not For Basketball Discrimination is not my way! Basketballs for all People everyday. The small ones know how to push it. They’ll shoot the three and maybe even swoosh it. Don’t Discriminate because their small! They could block you even though your tall. The small ones can really take the pain. And most the time they let it rain. Just because your small don’t mean you’re a punk! Please I know I seen Allen Iverson Dunk! So please don’t Discriminate All you can do is just hate!
  6. 6. ! As I go through the days,quot; Weeping from the hurt down inside…quot; From all those people, kids, so called friends who always make me cryquot; They use their words as stones to kill, not to help as building bricksquot; They use these words to destroy and hurt,quot; Not to construct and fix.quot; What doesn’t kill you,quot; always makes you strongerquot; Whatever you can withstand will always make you live longer.quot; This world is sad, cold and cruelquot; I’m just a passing soul,quot; I long for that day where there’s no discrimination,quot; A day where I can feel complete and whole.quot;
  7. 7. People in this world discriminate Why are humans filled with hate They care about your ethnicity But they should practice simplicity Everyone should have a right I’ll stand up and help you fight They hate the color of your skin Lets stick together and then we’ll win You still wonder what they think Even when you’re on the brink Just take some time to say hi We are all under the same sky
  8. 8. Discrimination Is not nice It really does hurt It might not give you lice A Don’t make fun of me, my names Bert Guy II dancehave a pack funny don’t WithDon’t talk behind my back But I have a cute bunny The You still aren’t cool I really don’t care name swim in my pool Come I like my teddy bear. Bert.
  9. 9. Jews are mournful and weeping Their houses desolate and cold Nazis mocking and violent Their smiles cocky with pride Some Jews are hiding hoping for end Others our in camps where lives do end As all Nazis kill and burn Jews are scared and continue to yearn And while Jews hope and look for light The Nazis go and lose the fight The Nazis were bad The Holocaust is sad Lets hope it won’t happen again
  10. 10. Discrimination; why do we do it? Why must we make bitter accusations and despairing comments To people just like us, people who have feelings. People who are passionate about their ideals and believes. Why must we be so disrespectful and unsympathetic to others? So cold, harsh, selfish, stern, Completely oblivious to the consequences of our accusations. Why do we think that we are better, Than the ones we torture with the words we displace? Do we really believe we are superior to them? Are we really all that different? If not, then please answer the question, Discrimination; why do we do it?
  11. 11. A dark cloud hanging over society Ever present, never fully extinguished. The dictator of evil hearts in evil men, That rules with an iron fist. Forcing men to segregate humankind, Only because it cannot accept differences; It seeks only to destroy diversity. Never satisfied and always hungry For the blood and pain of the minority. But in the dark shines a single light, The light of the goodness left in humanity. It is an ever present reminder that even in the darkest hour, That someone will stand up for their beliefs And be that one light not put out by darkness. They will try to put an end to discrimination.
  12. 12. We Are Equal We started in the background Serving others Children and men We were raised from daughters to mothers Our dreams discouraged and ignored But look at us now We can do more than dream! We can work and vote And be mothers and wives too We have the best of both worlds The best of both choices and lifestyles We are women We are equal
  13. 13. The crowd was hostile. The children were scared. The world seemed to be still on it’s edge. It was white against black. Both sides were demanding. The white man was condescending. The black man was uneasy. There was a diabolic plan. To make the African-Americans do hard labor. They endured much suffering. Both physically and psychologically. This was the worst time in our history.
  14. 14. Everyone around is so upset and sad They are because of the man who treats them so bad Everyone hides in fear Some are even crying tears Children cannot have fun and play Instead they have to keep quiet all day Mothers and fathers keep their children close For they are the ones the family needs to keep relaxed the most Everyone has to stay un seen While hearing their closest friends scream There is nothing anyone can do Everything outside is like a out of control zoo
  15. 15. Discrimination The sound of children laughing outside The little boy is cynical, while he sits on the slide Watching the kids play without him The bitterness of his peers Left him cold and alone He watches and wonders why? The ball comes to him Demanding an answer as he weeps He gets up and runs to the field And shows them how it is done They finally let him in He is proud of himself for proving them wrong Maybe next time they will let him participate
  16. 16.   The Diabolic marching, tramp, tramp, tramp. The depressing thudding of steel-toed metronomes up and down a street. Welcome to the lives of the oppressed. Those who are resigned to a fate similar to death. The suspenseful waiting of those who have been secreted from the outside world. The pessimistic bellows of those who oft seek to destroy hopes and freedoms. The joyous news comes at last. The reign of the tyrant oppressors is over. Now comes the time of jubilation, the time of Allied Liberation. They are not perfect either. To the West, America divides itself by race. Between us and them, England divides by classes. To the East, Soviets suppress liberties and hopes, in favor of security. And here, in the monotonous ruins, we are divided by a wall. But, in time, the wall will fall, and we will be reunited.
  17. 17. Six million Jews already met their fate! The project was assigned! Delighted was my mind!! quot; I felt hateful blood pumping through my veins.! The Holocaust- a topic all my own! How dare those Nazis! All the Jews slain.! How facile to research a topic so well-known!! Let’s give those Nazis what they deserve!! I casually strolled to the library with glee! Hostile thoughts I could not conserve.! Praise for a wonderful paper will be given to me!! But at that moment, I closed my eyes! The library was bright, the atmosphere warm! So tranquil and calm; like the eye of the storm! And realized with great surprise! I collected my books and began to read! This is what happened over 60 years ago! But the Nazis, they were of a different breed.! The eradiation of people whose beliefs didn’t clearly flow! My topic, so lovely, was really quite tragic! Our problems violence can not solve! There were no whimsical sorcerers or magic! To improve our species, we must evolve!! Only violent men abhorring the Jews! “We must be rid of them; I know what to do”! And at that moment, I knew what to do! Diabolic men devised a haughty plan:! I sat up straight; my concentration grew! “We shall take every child, woman, and man,! I wrote and I wrote; I did my best work! Their tender hearts and hopeful minds! And on the way out, I smiled at the clerk! And in concentration camps they shall be I turned in my essay with pride I could not deny! confined! Until us sly, sinister Nazis decide! And counted the days until my teacher’s reply! That we, no longer in shame shall coincide! A week later, my paper was returned! With such disgusting beasts and their ugly “Oh Jessica, so much have you learned!! spawn! This essay caused you to open your eyes! Into the gas chambers and then their souls gone! To let go of the hate and realize! Burn the bodies, it’s all right!! We shall all still sleep at night!! That all mistakes, big or small! We stepped in but a moment too late! Have lessons to be learned that benefit us all.”!
  18. 18. There on a bus sat a lady Who was minding her own Then along came a white women wanting her seat Why do you want my seat kind lady? The white women was in a disliking You are black I am white “I come first before you” “We are equal” said the black women “I am here you need to go back there” One women changed the world forever We all now are together Because of one who stood up for herself
  19. 19. I say a word you say what a turd I have a dream why are you so mean I try to be polite but all you are is uptight why do you want to start a fight. You tell me I am stupid but really I am pretty lucid. Is it the color of my skin or is it just your whim. Am I really that bad that I make you so mad. Is It how It how I talk or the way I walk that makes you squawk. Why cant you just look in my eyes and tell me why .
  20. 20. Discrimination is a horrible thing It is a thing that you shouldn’t bring Onto our world and the people on it. Discrimination is not the way To change the world in anyway, I don’t think it should be done Because it isn’t good for everyone. To create a better place To live and work and enjoy your space Listen to the words I have to say Don’t discriminate in any way And everyone will have a better day.
  21. 21. What have these Nazis accomplished? They say no citizenship for you Just because you’re a Jew You go into hiding, becoming hopeless Jews everywhere are restless Who knows what will come tomorrow   God created all men and women equal So why do you have to suffer because you’re a Jew? Discrimination can be a violent thing But those lost souls have become a blessing They had to give up their lives because of what they believed Yet, they had achieved Pride and satisfaction for standing up for something So what have the Nazis accomplished? Nothing.
  22. 22. Change is the reason for discrimination, It’s not based on religion or original location. People fear change for one reason, Change like the ending of football season. They fear that the nice things they own, Can be stolen by different people that are unknown. But please won’t you realize, That these people you idealize As bad people with no goals, Are actually nice people with good souls.
  23. 23. Crying, screaming, yelling. All these mournful sounds I hear. Death is sadly filling the air. Killing, hurting, and pain. I fear to speak a word. Evil people, scary people. I don’t know what to think. I dream every day to get away. To a new life full of no grieving. Soon to be left with no family. My friends are already gone. Please, dear God, I’m hurting.
  24. 24. Discrimination The crowd of people all rioting demandingly. All people screaming to there hearts content. The victims are the crowd, yet they are angrily assembled. The police come to try to contain the hostile crowd. When the police pull up, the crowd draws weapons, ready to defend themselves or annihilate their offenders. The police have no choice but to prepare themselves for the worst of the cold, angry crowd. What should they do? They, who were franticly beaten by the cruelty of the offenders. What should they do? Prepared to defend their families from the enraged society. Should the greedy, pathetic offenders receive their just punishment? This would only lead to an outraged war. No, they must fall back, until the tragic times are over. When they can stand up for themselves against the cruelty of reality.
  25. 25. They pour from my heart, they pour from my soul: These feelings I just can’t control. Like sticky tar, they consume me They’ve buried me. Please exhume me now. I can’t take this anymore These feelings that I just abhor: Wanting with my heart what I say I can’t have I’m torn all apart: I’m cut in half! These feelings feel like a splotch on my soul With these feelings, I can not feel whole. I hope and I pray These feelings will just fade away…
  26. 26. Thousands of people is what I see No one specific stands out to me Everyone is just the same Yet people stare with nothing but another’s religion or skin to blame I don’t see how people can be so degrading Always judging, always hating Why can’t we all just learn to love each other? Let us join hands, every father, mother, sister and brother! The love will ring from man to man We will conquer discrimination with this new plan The world will then know peace and trust Love, compassion, and understanding is a must
  27. 27. Why? I could be black white or blue But in the end its what portrays to you It doesn’t matter if I feel good about myself Its wrong if I look any different than anybody else People that look different but feel the same Are discriminated against because they are colored or have a weird name I may be different and abnormal But I think that together on Earth we are one whole I ask myself why was I born this way? A voice in my head says: You were meant to be different and stand out People just discriminate because of self doubt I walk the same halls I go to the same school But no matter what majority rules I look in my mirrors I realize I will always have discrimination fears The fears bring discriminated tears I dream of a world where discrimination does not exist But when that world comes along the old world with discrimination will not be missed.
  28. 28. Black and Whites Together As One Back in the day Blacks and whites weren’t treated the same. No stores where both could shop, Certain drinking fountains where blacks could stop. No blacks in schools, They were treated like fools. Whites told them they were no good, To be nice to them they should. One day it all ended. But some whites just pretended, Like it was all a game, They thought the blacks and whites could never be the same.
  29. 29. Were all equal Were all the same No one is different and People may change We all make friends We all make enemies Treat everyone the same No ones different from one another Color doesn’t matter Black or white, Red or orange Were all the same in some way, shape, or form
