MLK Oratorical: Feel

February 3, 2017

An original poem by Arjun A. (winner, Individual Original Composition, at Montclair Elementary, and 2nd place in the District-wide MLK Jr. Oratorical)

Feel as if you are one of the people who never get their way.

Feel as if you are one of the people who in this country cannot stay.

Feel as if you are one of the people who are judged because of their race.

Feel as if you are one of the people who get judged because of their face.

Feel as if you are one of the people who racism pushes them down.

Feel as if if you are one of the people who wear a permanent frown.

Feel as if you are one of the people who get treated like this every day.

There are so many people like this, who live in the U.S.A.
