Weeds, Mulberry Trees, and People​ ​ 

from Nhojj Poetry Vol. 3 by Nhojj



Lots of changes are happening in my neighborhood, and change is difficult...


The older gentleman pulled out weeds 
To make way for his vegetable garden
But couldn’t understand why 
They cut down the mulberry trees to make way for their plaza

The black woman at the meeting said
Why do you care?  It’s just a tree
But didn’t understand when they said 
Why should we care?
It’s just women...
It’s just blacks...
It’s just gays...
It’s just immigrants...

We value lives differently because 
We have different values 

Life is life 

People are people

No life is more valuable than another 
No life is less valuable than the other 
So be kind good people 

Be kind and respect all life 

Life which lives in all 
Will reciprocate and be 
Kind to you
