What do you see in Charlottesville?


Stand by You (Rachel Platten)

What do you see in Charlottesville?

By Kae Bucher

Please… 

What do you see- 

in those blue eyes of his? 

Do you see 

the Blue 

Ox Eyed bird 

who fears for his nest

as he fights against

extinction?

Or do you see a slave owner 

instead?

Please…

What do you see-

when you look at the Jewess?

Do you see 

flowing sands

and olive trees

in imprisoned dreams 

wandering lost through

holocausts?

Or do you see a Jewish demon

instead?

Please…

What do you see-

upon his black glowing skin?

Do you see

black nails 

coming out of coffins

of generations

locked in

bondage ?

Or do you see

a criminal 

instead?

Please…

what do you see 

in Charlottesville…

do you see

generations of fear

looking out window pains

wanting to be

heard

Or do you only hear the voice

of your own suffering

instead of 

pleas?

~When we cannot see the pain  in another’s eyes… we fight against humanity’s heart… seeking to kill ourselves one beat at a time .~©Kae
