Social Justice Poetry

Lows | A Social Justice Poem by JD DeHart

Don’t be brought low,
rise. Remember you have
purpose. Your voice
is one of billions but it’s
still a voice that matters.
Don’t let anyone tell you
that your place in life
brings you low. That your
skin or culture brings
you low. Tell them your
story – proudly.
Existence precedes recognition.
A diamond still lives
in the earth even if no one
knows to dig it out.
Be the diamond you are,
sharp or loving edges,
glistening or rough.
