Poem- To kill a Mockingbird

POEM


Wrongly accused was a black man

in a town that told untruths

Created a curious girl whose name was Scout

and her bigger brother too

Together they explored

innocent around their world

faced with

Injustice of a man

corruption of a court

Prejudice of all kinds and racism up and down

lessons where learned each day

with morals of life

Pesonal Reflection

  • After reading this story I can't help but feel enraged at how unfair society was back then for people that were labeled 'Colored' just due to their skin. The whole thought process of it is just insane really. A Black man being accused of a crime he couldn't even commit even if he tried due to a disability from birth. Reading this story really connected to me on multiple personal levels of emotion and insight within myself. Getting a little girl to help narrate this story was, in my opinion, the greatest thing the author did to help get his views across.

A Letter To Scout

Dear Scout,
-After reading the your way you viewed things growing up in a society of such prejudice and racism it's quite amazing that you were able to stick to your young tomboyish girl personality. Especially when in that time, being a girl came with requirements that where due to society standards in being a ''lady''. But through it all you stayed your fierce self not taking any negative talk from anyone on how you acted. You where a very determined, insightful, and open-minded girl, which made me like your personality even more and more.

-Sincerely Angel
