Civil Rights Poem

Civil Rights, an act to be free
when all around segregation we see
Disrespect, no justice all the time
Segregation, a worldly crime

Segregation towards groups of people at most
Pain and disrespect from coast to coast
killing just because of the colour of skin
Killing and killing the ultimate sin.

All people are equal someone once said
but now the so called equals have fled
if all of us are equal then why do we fight
beating and disrespect all through the day and night

They don`t deserve it what have they done
we fight them and think we have won
let`s stop the death, the disrespect, it all
for if we don`t this world surly will fall.
We had to right a poem about the american civil rights, in american history class.

it depends. do you yourself have to write something. i dont think your teacher would like plagiarism. you may just as long as you give credit. dont tell them that you wrote it

Thats a very good poem and i agree with you. No one should be judged just because they are different. In one way or another humans are equal
