For English I wrote two poems. The poem on the left is in the perspective of an African American woman trying to sit at a "Whites only" counter. The poem on the right is in the perspective of a White man trying to move the woman away from the counter.

Getting out of the Darkness (Art)
My art piece is about the African American women, and men getting out of the darkness. At the bottom you can see the people that are trying to break free from the darkness. They're trying to get to the light, but they have been stuck in the darkness for so long that their perception of the outside world, the "light" is blurry. Not having any idea of what's up there when they get out, the only thing they do know that's up there is church. Getting to the church isn't a easy journey; walking along the path that leads to their goal is long, and tiresome.
