ILLUMINATION

My Hardest Work Never Matters

A poem on racism.

No matter how hard I try, my best isn’t enough.

I feel like I’m a victim of the system who can’t stay afloat.

No one to pull me out the water when it’s too much.

I’ve been holding these thoughts in for an eternity, so to stop myself from crying, I have to emote.
