Social Justice Poetry

One Day | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

When he heard the words,
He wondered what else he
Could possibly do
To make this type of
Treatment end.

He had worked impossibly
Hard to rewrite his biography,
Surmounting poverty and disadvantage
To become a respected
Professional.

He yearned for a day when he
Could walk down the street
Without being eyed with suspicion,
Shunned because of
His physical appearance.

One day his grandchildren
Would wake up
In a world transformed
By empathy and
Love.
