Protest Poem

 

My brother stares up at me;
trying to find the words to recite;
As I watch in agony;
knowing he won’t get it right.

His disability is now in control;
And he’s frustrated with his inability;
On this family it has taken its toll;
Stripping away our stability.

People stare questioning his humanity;
whispering things that make my heart sink;
Their minds clouded with hurtful insanity;
If only they could believe what I think.

When he is wrongly judged next time;
I will show them their not right;
My words put together so sublime;
I shall tell them of his plight.

Changing the mind of just one person;
Can change the mind of many;
it can better not worsen;
His happiness, worth the same as any.

    I like how you wrote about disabilities and how you used your own personal experiences to write a protest poem. I wish you had ended it differently.

    star: i really liked how you made it rhyme but it made sense
    star: i think people can really connect to the person who is writing to this poem
    wish: the line word put together so sublime didn’t really make sense until i read twice maybe change that one line?
