Doesn’t Matter Where*

Doesn’t Matter Where
Small town
or Big City
It doesn’t matter where you are--
gun violence, rape, and robbery--
this is the world I live in,
where racism isn’t getting better,
but worse.
People die, mothers cry.
What has this world become?
I pray, I pray,
every night I pray,
wishing everything could be okay.
M. Rivera, International Prep High School
