Social Justice Poetry

Familiar | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

They assert
The world will
Always be the same,
Will never change,
That people will
Invariably be the way
They have always been.

Pessimistic myopia
Asserted by dreamless
Sorts who have been
Hurt at some point and
Cannot trust that
There is still abundant
Kindness in the world.

Insist you can’t
Make things better,
And you’ll perpetuate
The familiar suffering,
Believe you can
Change the world,
And you will.
