The Difference

The Difference

A Poem by RayJayy

world problems that hit home.

change Pictures, Images and Photos

We've marched
sang our souls out
and have protested.
We Still Do
those that want to be accepted
the ones that fight to get their equal rights
children of 3rd world countries
they want what I
take for granted.
what I've never realized
took a big
part of my life
until now,
simply to get married
live in the land of the free
being able to go to school
they fight harder than Ali
and sing louder than Aretha Franklin
they even paint better pictures than Picasso
never wake in the presence of fear
they look up farther past that stars
way beyond the moon
they are who I look up to
because they fight
knowing what they know
that things may not change till
my generation hits the house.
till we make that change
patience is their virtue
ignorance is their best friend
they have more knowledge of their lives
then the people making them statistics
they are what America was built on
the will to die free
and the politically correct
they are
our fathers
role models
they are,
The Difference.
