RACISM

By: Joshua Tou Yeng Yang

I live in this world ruled by race,

But I see tears of my people,

Tears of the Hmong,

The tears of the young crying for their moms.

The discrimination for the sad stories our parents told us about the Vietnam War,

Being the blame why the U.S. lost the War.

Being mistaken everywhere we go,

Being call Chinese,

Being call chink,

It hurts my heart and my soul.

and

Maybe one day the Hmong people will find hope.

Until then our people will face this discrimination.

Wonder Why

I wonder,
I wonder,
Why sometimes we die
Why sometimes we cry
Why sometimes we lie
Why this fool i know is a puss why, why
Why we die in a world like this
Like a wise guy said you don’t need to put on make up
All you need to do is to take off that fake stuff
And you need is to wake up
So i wonder why
Why sometimes we die
Why sometimes we cry
Why sometimes we lie
Why we need to drink ourselves to deaf
All you need to do is take a deep breath
And let your pain go away
And start a new day
So i wonder why
Why sometimes we die
Why sometimes we cry
Why sometimes we lie
Why we judge other people before we even know them
Why we make them the bad guy and not the good guy
Because inside every angry person
There is a good person
So i wonder sometimes
Why sometimes we die
Why sometimes we cry
Why sometimes we lie
I just wonder, wonder why sometimes……

Finding Love

Every time when I see my love in sight,
I really want to tell her how much I feel inside,
But then I see her with another guy, so then I locked myself and cried,
Even though it makes me sadder but that doesn’t matter,

All I want to see is her beautiful Smile.

Just be you

Every where I go
Every where I look
I always see
All group
With only one race
Has so much hate
On each other
Never see
Any peace
In this world
It’s always got to be
White on that side
Black over that side
Asian on that side
And the other
Got to be on some other side
No love
Just hate
No hug
Because of different race
No tears
Because no one care
Just death
Because everyone want to be on the top
Don’t try to be stupid
Being races
On your own kind
And on others
Because you never
Went through the things
That they already went through
It’s just your point of view
Not theirs
Show some love
Show some respect
Then you’ll understand
Their race and culture
And they will too learn
Something from you
Become one group
Don’t be races like other crews
Just be you
Then you’ll understand the truth

Why Should I Remember?

Why should I remember?
Memories form the past?
They are long forgotten
For reasons, do not ask
They are ships, drowned and forgotten
Pain drowned in the sea
I’m an explosion waiting to happen
I am the pain in me
No more do I try to fight it
The pain is here to stay
Just hide it and deny it
Yet it grows stronger everyday
Lock it up, throw away the key
I am my pain and it is me.

– Paris
