Social Justice Poetry

Cast | A Social Justice Poem by Roy Pullam

We are always
In boxes
Sex, age, color, economic status
All having invisible walls
That define where we start
Often where we finish
We struggle against
Those barriers
But society
Reinforces their sturdiness
Rebar in the concrete
Making the obstacles
More rigid
So formidable
That often we accept
The impossibility of escape
Finding whatever comfort
In the situation
We feel
We cannot change
