Zac And Dongjae's Little Rock 9 Poem

Poem For History
By Zac and Dongjae

One person
Can help to shape the world
A group of people
Can do the same
In history
Both have done something
But a group is faster
The world is strong
Society can crumble
An individual can do this

In history
Segregation has reigned supreme
But to be taken down
By believers of good
People can destroy monsters
They can also become one
When people are put into different situations
They become monsters.

Little Rock, Arkansas is one of many examples
Of how cruel people can be
Angry white mobs crowd around
An ex-all white school.
As nine black children
Enter a domain of hate
Not for who they are
but what they were seen as.
