"As I began my journey into adulthood, I realized the persona of what I was led to believe a man should be was a standard I could not meet. I believed in God, but I did not believe in me. I felt fear. I felt anxiety. I felt insecure. And I could tell no one about it. Instead, I began to write my feelings down in the form of poetry on scraps of paper. This process helped me to be honest with myself about who I saw in the mirror. As you read through, maybe it can help you, too." - Eric Christopher Jackson

 

Excerpt:

“Sentenced”

Sandy Brook Elementary School

Can you see them?
The look of terror in their eyes
Knowing they’re about to die
Not able to run if they tried

Can you hear them?
Screaming as shots ring out
Crying as blood pours out
Death…there is no doubt

Can you tell them?
Why this was allowed
Licenses to show them how
Evil is given a right to live
As they are sentenced to die
