About the Poem
My poem may not be about me, because I am white and catholic and, after all, only thirteen.
But after I saw a movie where blacks and Jewish people were being discriminated against badly, I wanted to write about how I would feel if I were facing that kind of discrimination.
In God's Eyes
|I don't understand why they treat us this way,
We are not that different, inside were all the same,
We should not be judged by our religion or the color of our face,
Because in the end, we're all running this same race,
I wake up each day and I want to run away,
Away from this world of cruelty and shame,
And I think of the joy that our world could have,
If we all stop this madness and never forget that in God's eyes,
we are all the Same.
