Monumental Haiku

by Luz Olea

“Our Voices”

How many times

Will we be silenced again

We need to be heard

When will we unite

Fighting the stereotypes

Together as one

We will come as one

To break all the barriers,

All the social injustice

“One Nation”

How long till we are

“One Nation Under God”

When will we have peace


Think of all the pain

They had to experience

The hate they went through,

The unnecessary crime

All this violence

So much blood was shed,

Changes need to be

Made in order for justice

To be served rightfully.
