poem challenge: I hope ...

I hope ...

I hope this will be over,
that all the anger
will finally end.

I hope that people can open their eyes
and see that we are not all that different
just because of something on the outside.

I hope that people can realize
that fighting against the truth
does not make it go away.

I hope that by the time the pandemic ends
there will not be a war waging 
because of skin.

I hope and pray for those who have lost people
to more than just a virus
but to inequality.
