Social Justice Poetry

That Is Me | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

Blissfully easy,
Categorizing a
Human being as
Defective, lazy,
Unworthy of care,
Compassion.

Cruel exercise,
Rendering a person
Featureless,
Expendable,
Trash decomposing
In a gutter.

Crucial shift
From apathy, scorn
To compassion,
Understanding,
That is me
But for chance.
