Conscious Poetry: “I am not Charlie” by Sarah Bueno

I AM NOT CHARLIE!!

I am the victims of Nigeria,

I am the hungry children in East Africa,

I am the haunted and killed Muslims and Christians all over the world,

I am the discriminated jews,

I am that black man you call N***a,

I am that turkish woman you gossip about cause she is wearing a hijab,

I am that refugee from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Africa,

I am that Native American family that lost everything,

I am that african that got taken in the name of slavery,

I am each and every discriminated, hated, hungry, poor person in this world,but I am NOT a racist newspaper that does not have respect for other religions and cultures!!!

I AM NOT CHARLIE!!!

– Sarah
