  1. 41. Harmony

    I grew up on a farm in the mid-west. Our neighbors were the same as we we were, Scotch, Irish, and English. I never knew what prejudice meant until we moved to California where there were many nationalities. I'm thankful for my original upbringing and never developed a prejudice towards those with different nationalities. It is so sad to see the hurt that it can bring. I tried to teach my children tolerance and understanding.

    Outside my window flowers bloom
    In a rampant disarray.
    They pay no heed to color schemes
    In their wonderful display.

  2. 42. Humanity

    This poem is about being human and what that entails.

    Helping even when you're weary
    Understanding other's pain
    Managing to let hurt go
    And forgiving once again

  3. 43. Black Is Beautiful

    • By Sharon D. Brown-Rogers
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A woman expresses her love for the color of her skin.

    Black is
    Black is as beautiful as a bed of milky white clouds.
    Black is as beautiful as soft as a newborn baby hair.
    Black is as beautiful as standing up for what is right.

    It really touched me and I am going to use it to motivate and encourage others. Some of our black brothers and sisters hate themselves because they are black.

  4. 44. Planting Seeds

    I grew up in a farming community where prejudice was unknown. I'm almost 98 now and realize how fortunate I was. I see so much bitter unhappiness in the world around me now and believe most of the hurt started in childhood, often unknowingly. Peace will never come until each is willing to respect the other's viewpoint.

    I was in a room the other day
    Where seeds were being planted.
    I could only hope and pray
    Their growth would not be granted.

  5. 45. The Light

    Frequent bouts of depression have left me crippled, thinking that I do not deserve to walk on this Earth. The light, in this case, is my mother. My poem is intended to guide others facing similar struggles to their Light. May it be a friend, a family member, or even yourself, you do have a Light. Keep searching, my friend.

    Through darkness and despair,
    I can count on you.
    Deep in the pits of hell
    I can see you,

  6. 46. Cost Of A Smile

    This little poem I wrote is just about how a simple smile to anyone, even a stranger, might make a change in someone's day! Maybe even their life. We just never know what another person could be going through!

    The cost of a smile isn't much,
    although many people act as such.
    We all have our problems of struggle and strife,
    but a smile will help in anyone's life.

  7. 47. A Way To Give

    The Word of God has a lot to say about giving. Whenever I read it or I'm on the receiving end of a gracious act, it constantly challenges and inspires me. There is beauty in giving.

    Focus on self only makes
    the world a dreary place to live.
    But you make it a brighter scene
    when you find a way to give.

    "Leave a gift for someone who won't find out it's from you." That is hitting the bull's eye of generosity, and it's fun.

  8. 48. Just For Today

    • By Dawn M. England
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2018

    I used to write a lot of poetry as a teenagers and dip my toe in writing every now and then.
    Now a mummy to a beautiful little girl who makes me so proud.

    Just for today,
    Can we forget about race,
    Colour, religion
    And who isn't 'straight'

  9. 49. It's Time To Help Them

    I really enjoy working with the special needs kids at school and volunteer when I have the time. This was written at 15 and the end of my freshman year.

    Have you ever asked
    Why the singing bird sings?
    Why people help people
    Without gaining a thing?

  10. 50. Who Will Cry?

    There is always someone out there who notices our pain and does care. For Hannah, my little sister, who was scared.

    Who will cry for the little girl?
    A little girl is she.
    Who will cry for the little girl?
    The one with the broken home.

  11. 51. Be Happy For What You've Got

    I am writing this because I constantly hear people say they have no luck getting good jobs and how they have no friends, when I'm always there giving them advice and support like any friend should.

    Help the homeless,
    Feed the poor.
    A job's a job,
    Even sweeping floors.

  12. 52. Tolerance

    Sadly, it seems as though racism is increasing. I was never exposed to it as a child. We were taught that character was what was important, not color. I have friends in many races, and it saddens me when people are hurt by intolerant people. I realize that people are victims of their own upbringing and see no need to change. I can only pray for better understanding in the future.

    Perpetuating hatred--
    It's happening every day,
    While many who contribute
    Would be the first to say,

  13. 53. Broken

    • By Britney Hardin
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2010

    This poem is a vision that, in a way, haunts me. The faces are the people I must help and I can help by facing my past. The place where I was broken because these people need someone to listen and hear them.

    I see a sea of faces,
    many I have never met,
    but yet I feel compassion for them.

  14. 54. A Lot Of Anger

    • By Julia Docking
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2010

    I wrote this because I was tired of people judging me without knowing me.

    I ache with this...
    words scream out of my mouth with no meaning.
    No sounds compare to the things I seem to say.
    I am sorry.

  15. 55. A Fireman

    • By Maricarmen Magana
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2012

    This poem is about my cousin, who is a firefighter. It's about how he leaves everything and everyone behind to go save some stranger's life, even if he has to risk his own life.

    He heads for the door,
    Not knowing if he will come home.
    On the outside he seems calm,
    But inside he wonders

  16. 56. The Dream

    • By Steven
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2008

    This poem was written in my first sixty days getting clean from a horrible drug addiction. It came when I first realized there was hope for me.

    The dream of getting out.
    We live in a place where fear walks around like a school yard bully.
    It's in our face every minute of every day.
    There is a nothingness about fear.

    This is dedicated to my dad who is no longer with me. Some words needed to be said as I made my journey into adulthood. Not everything is forgotten, but some have passed.

    Many years have now gone by
    with the anger I had inside.
    I often wondered what went wrong,
    you so angry for so long,

  18. 58. Unequal Horizons

    • By Karen L. Miller
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2015

    Poem about racial inequality in the United States and the hope that someday we can treat all of our citizens equally.

    The morning light comes shining through
    Upon the grass all fresh with dew.
    How pleased I am that I can stand
    Upon this free and fertile land.
