Collective poem from the Zoem online Poetry Reading group, June 12, 2020

What does your protest sign say?

My sign has always said, 
Make something happen!

With fists of tears, my sign says,
I can’t believe I still have to protest this shit!

I can’t walk in your shoes
but I can put mine on and walk beside you.

Race is for Cars not us.

My protest sign says,
Your god does not make you good.
Normalize saying,
I was wrong.

My sign would say 
Every poem is a love poem. Try it.
Love to all Beings

I love you.
