RACISM, A DISASTROUS ELEMENT

RACISM, A DISASTROUS ELEMENT I look at the world horrifically, With depression and disgust, As the masses enjoys in poverty And fear. I look at the world horrifically. Every places, full of stratification, And unlawful massacre of people. Hmmm! What a cruel universe! I look at the world horrifically. Yesterday, raping and killing, Today, racism, Tomorrow, i guess something deadly and disastrous. I look at the world horrifically. Segregation among the whites, Segregation among the blacks. Weirdest part, segregation between the black and the whites. I look at the world horrifically, Stratification among the blacks, i called "tribalism ". Hatred, i called among the whites. Disunity rules. I look at the world horrifically, As our ancestors in great slumber. With no hope of fortune. Crying, segregation of the highest bidder. Alimi Abdulkabir's Poetry 03/06/2020

I enjoy reading your poem. It really sends a clear message that racism should not be tolerated by anyone at anytime anywhere. Unfortunately during times like this, it still exists. Recently, there were protests from the entire world about the death of George Floyd. I hope and pray that racism will end and everyone will get along. Please stay positive and be safe.
