    LETTER TO THE IGNORANT RACIST MAN


    Dear Mr. Ignorant Racist MAN
    Who’s preventing me from doing all I can
    You see who I am,
    Where I’m from
    My race.
    I’m still trying to understand this place
    And how I, myself, can fit in
    I guess not that well
    Since you still judge me by the color of my skin
    But whomever I’m with
    Where I live
    That does not rate the love I give
    It doesn’t show my quality
    But, then again, you can’t really know me.
    Would you know the extent of my ability?
    Well, apparently
    You’re blinded by your enmity
    The image in front of you is all you see
    Man, don’t you realize that I have dreams?
    There are so many things that I want to be
    I want to help save the world,
    I want to spread a million words
    But clearly,
    I can’t
    I still need to be free
    From you and your oppressing conformities
    That keeps me from having true liberty.
    What makes you hate my ethnicity?
    Is it because its been said by your ancestry?
    Don’t you see that we
    Need to agree
    To stop this separation
    And just be happy?
    Do you want that?
    Don’t you want that?
    Or would you rather have me hate the fact that I’m black?
    Would you rather me aspire to be like you
    I don’t need your acceptance,
    My value will always be true
    What I need… is your cooperation
    Let’s truly become a united nation
    Cause if we don’t try and keep the peace
    This world will only quickly decease
    Open your mind
    Extend your heart
    Remove the chains

    There is no need for all this pain
    And you are the one providing all the rain.
    Which makes me see you with disdain
    I’m not insane
    You can change.
    And I know this.
    So,
    I hope from my words
    You’ll embrace the day
    When everyone realizes
    Being diverse is more than okay
    Then all our troubles will be far away
    This is all I am meant to say
    I hope you take this wisdom
    Let all that is good, be good
    Cause mister,
    I know you see me as second rate
    But I’ve always been ready to forgive your hate
    Just make sure your apology is not too late.
    So we’ll all be at those heavenly gates.


    This letter is sincerely,
    From an Afro-American writer
    A.k.a the poetic strider
    Who’s ALWAYS prepared to help hearts shine brighter
    In order to make our souls lift higher
