About the Poem

I think more people need to be educated on racism and the affects it has on our nation. There is no need what so ever to have hate in our hearts. I just wish more people would open up and realize how much we as human beings need to stick together because we are all God's children and he love's ever single one of us.

This poem is for anyone who has hate in their heart. Let it go. Teach the children of our future to love, not to hate. EVERYONE has something to offer. Open up your heart and love. It actually feels pretty good.

Isn't It Time?

The Earth is an island floating in space
Upon it are people of more than one race
Forget what's behind you
Don't live in the past
We must all work together for our island to last
The cries of our children are heard worldwide
Prejudice, racism
So many have died.
