Poem #4 by Lorenzo Dozier

Poem #4 by Lorenzo Dozier

Welcome to the land of
Opportunities.
The same country used to
Kill both you and me.
Do you still believe
this place was built on
Democracy or prefer the

Lies you were told and live
In hypocrisy?
We spew hate, race wars
Cause riots, start violence
It’s easy being bad and a
choice to be defiant.
The world doesn’t want to
understand.
We choose not to listen
To others nor do we
Comprehend.
For a place built on lies
People don’t want to wake
Up until someone dies.
Why else are we given
Distractions? To keep to
Ourselves busy, instead of
Taking actions.
The further away society
Drifts from the truth, the
More hate is created and
That is what we show our
youth.
