Book Spotlight: Peace Poems (Created to protect peace) by Amani Nigia Williams


 A peaceful world

That’s all I want

That’s all I see

No more killing

No more fights

Enough is enough

We need to try

To do better

To be better

And to love one another

World peace is all I want.

Black Lives Matter

Our lives matter

Because we are all the same

It shouldn’t matter

If we come from the South or North

All that matters

Is our personality and what we can do

It shouldn’t matter

If we pay for food with an EBT card

Or a black card

We are all still eating the same food

It shouldn’t matter that 

I have long, black dreads

I am not a criminal

You look at my appearance and

Already think you know 

My whole life story

Well, news flash, you don’t

Just like you, we have dreams, too

Like becoming a doctor

Or the President of the United States

We are important and we will fight

For our rights

Our skin color doesn’t define us

We do.
