Yellow (Friday Night Poetry Corner #80)

Welcome everyone to another segment of Friday Night Poetry Corner. Last we was an off week but now the corner is back and back with a passionate poem of justice and emotional strength of person.
Protesting in Ferguson, MO

This piece call “Yellow” by Autumn Movement is an art of the current times. I think regardless of what side you on if you are not empathic to the freedom of others and/or exploring the differing position of your belief well frankly.  I don’t know what to say logically to open your mind…

This poetic made me think a little more on life struggles– thank you and thank everyone for supporting the 80th feature poem of the Poetry Corner!
