Social Justice Poetry

House of the Young | A Social Justice Poem by JD DeHart

They must be taught
how to sit
and to live with each other,
how to speak
and utter syllables.
their parents are not
teaching them.
they must be guided
in how to travel, walk
without bumping into
each other.
it is a slow, methodic
process and the hardest
truth is we cannot reach
them all.
