Social Justice Poetry

Acceptance | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

I hear the same words
Coming from different
Mouths in slow motion,
With great conviction,
No doubts or hesitation.

They all describe
A disconsolate landscape of
Hopelessness and futility,
An entrenched acceptance of
Callousness and cruelty.

We’re all on our own,
They mutter grimly;
I’m transported to their
Formative years when someone
Important told them that.
