In Sight

Insight found the flaws

In systems that perpetuate my circumstances

Showing power and control

Over oppressed, low-income communities

Who respond in haste

To keep up with societal progression

Which adds problems or issues

That can be solved by these very systems

But, the issue is the system

And the problem is the haste

To pacify oppressed, low-income communities

That is the power systems possess

And use to control minorities

Within a system that has no insight

In sight


DMRDEL is a poet, mother of two, and believes that, as we grow our communities, we will grow stronger.
