Have you ever been happy to see some one be a risk taker? My favorite poem of the Poetry Festival is the three girls from St.Paul School because they were talking about how black lives matter and how we should stop the violence and pick up the books, and how it feels good to learn something new. What made it stand out in its own way was that they made their own beat, and they all were stomping to what they were saying.
A specific line I remember is BLACK! LIVES! MATTER! What I think they were trying to tell us was that black people are getting killed every day. It’s a kid or an adult that is getting killed over someone’s personal problems. I think that’s one reason why they said black lives matter. Kids would rather ditch school and start violence than just do what they have to do to leave faster. This whole thing makes me think about how there are bad things going around in this world and people are making bad choices.
This makes me feel like they care about us, but mostly themselves and it also made me happy because they were risk takers just to get on the stage.
