Favorite Quote:
live laugh love run!

A social dispute
Between different ethnic groups
One left defenseless
While the others sent troops
The blood shed
And the tears dropped
So many people praying and hoping
But it was too late the day the horror stopped
“You’re not superior
You’re a person like us all!”
To stand in amazement
And watch while a complete race was left to fall
“You’re an animal
You’re a beast!”
You could’ve done more
But you did the very least
I am not inferior
And neither is anyone
So I say this
And I’m done
“My race, color or needs in life
Won’t be put 2nd to any other human being.
You have an education and 20/20 vision
But you’re blind and unwise if you can’t see.”

I love this poem, the flow is great, the word choice is really good.

I especialy like "A social dispute

Between different ethnic groups

One left desnseless

While others sent troops"

That's amazing. But I think it would flow better if you put "between two" instead. This is really strong and you can feel the emotion. I think the ending needs a bigger bang. But seriously, this is amazing. Keep writing[: 5 staaars
