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……

Runaway: " what are your reasons for running away?"

Some people think kids runaway just because they want attention. Not true. It’s because of the problems at home that are not seen from the outside. Abuse, neglect, & rapes are just three of the top runaway issues but it is not all of the reasons why teens runaway.
