Poem in response to Peace, Justice and Strong Insitution
Be very afriad
By Grace Muresan
Every day I am afraid.
When I walk alone I walk
In fear and feeling betrayed.
When I’m alone I’m scared
Of the man dressed all in black
Who might be following me.
Maybe someone will put me in a sack
Or grab me from behind and take me away
After reading the news all men scare me.
Maybe they have good intentions
But I will not stick around to see
And I know good people are asking
Why do you assume all of us are bad?
Why do your steps quicken when you see me?
But society says we are at fault
For trusting you.
So whenever I go out
I must remind myself
What I don’t what to think about
Always, be very afraid.
