A Small Poem About the World
by Alyssa P. (Grade 12)

Over these past few months
I have become self aware;
So many bad things happening,
yet nobody cares.
All over, racism
and this virus
floating in the air,
But our president
not taking action
is clearly unfair.

Some are oblivious,
but I'm now awake.
I see the unfairness
society makes, and can't help
that now, I'm taken aback
how others won't acknowledge
the equality so many citizens lack.
I just hope that somehow,
together, we can right our train
called a country that's gone off track.
