A Step Back - Poem by Patrice Delevoe

Is it

hungry kids, sleepless nights
bombed cities, hate fight
racism, rapeist, records for murders
got me feeling unprotected

Or it is

taxes raising, budget cuts
higher tuition, no solution
government cover-ups, unexplained wars
death knocking at your front door

Maybe all of the above

but does my thoughts matter, am I to typical?
cause i'm not rich, famous, or a million dollar actor
the unhear voices, the unheard cries, empty heart, all replies
this is not the dream of Martin Luther King.
