    Poem About Wildfires

    I know I may irritate you a bit.

    Worldwide Social Injustice

    It's time to embrace every culture,
    One flock, one shepherd, one fold
    Whatever our race, hue or faith
    We're all made from the same mould.

    Black And White Issues

    And how do I claim to stand for what's right,
    Then accept disregard for your lives?
