strange fruit

strange fruit

A Poem by Violeta
"

describes razism towards black people

"

what is that fruit

hanging from the tree

some are bigger some are smaller

hoping to fall free

 

the birds are poking them

eyes start to fall off

they smell rotten

yet no one tries to stop it

no one makes a sound

 

life has left them

red liquid all around

they lost their freedom

and is nowhere to be found

 

there is some strange black fruit

hanging from the tree

some are younger, some are older

hoping to fall free.

Of course I don't agree with racism, but yet I like how you described the process of how when they are hung they are like the fruit. My beliefs, when we are ready to die are Mother harvests us. We are nothing but what we are around us. We are only mildy different, we take in different air, and energy then plants. Wow, this I really like, keep it up :)

it is one of the first time I read poems in English so it was not very easy. :D BUT: I always prefer blank verse when i read poetry in my free-time, but somehow I liked your poem too:))) there are some places which looks too simple for me(red liquid), but main view is OK.:) good luck.

heh, I like this a lot. It gives me really good imagery and appears to link to not just racism, but a lot of different aspects of society. It seems open to interpretation a little, which really intrigues me. Fantastic writing.

Oh no, your grammar was fine. Such a great piece of writing, that the grammar doesn't really matter. If you will, please tell me your inspiration for writing this. Was it the story of the forbidden fruit with Adam and Eve?

I would really love to know what your inspiration was for writing this piece, it seems to me that although you were writing about one thing, something else was comming through the words, but I cant quite figure out what...am I speaking the truth?
