Racism in School

By Ahmad Al-Khatat

Racism in School

Racism is not an exam to study for
Racism is not an assignment to do
Racism in school is a serious issue
between my teachers and myself
My science teacher fears that,
I would create a bomb to destroy
the classroom, and the whole school
he intentionally fails me more than once
My English teacher fears that,
I would write a bloody story about
fighting and, hating each other's
he never reads my heart-breaking poems
My geography teacher fears that,
I would occupied a country in the map,
and create a war against the civilians
she even fears answering my questions
I learned myself that I'm just a victim
I have to fight with my broken words
my father always works like a blindfolded
slave, with sweats all over his faithful smile
