Fear Not

Fear for not myself
But for my children
Afraid of the world
And the danger it holds

Afraid for my children being judged
Not for their knowledge
Or for their gender
But for the color of their skin

Terrified that my children
Will be treated different
Wanting a better future for them
But afraid of what the future holds

Afraid that my children
Will not be treated equal
Fighting for not only my life
But for all my children out there

For our chance to stand up
And make a difference
For our voices to be heard
My fear of the discrimination

Afraid that my children
Will not receive the education
They deserve and long for

A mother’s fear is fatal
But a mother’s struggle and hard work to make a difference
Is permanent.
