Black History Poem

A poem written by Candace, a 14-year-old in our after-school program. 

This is a poem

A poem about history

There’s black

There’s white

But to me, it’s just a mystery

What does it matter?

Where you came from

All that really matters is what you do and have done

Yes history is a mystery

Not only to me

Let me figure it out so I can see

The mystery behind the history

I’ll just open my eyes

Big, wide, and happy

And find a surprise

While history is a mystery

Not only to me

The true question is

Who will you be?
