dc.description.abstractThis collection of poems is inspired by the song by legend and King of Pop Michael Jackson. Listening to this song two years ago reminded me that there are wounds in this country that are not just ours, but the world’s. Some of those wounds are killers, such as Racism, Colorism, Social Inequality, Domestic Violence, and Depression. These killers are the same predator in every country although they wear different faces. “We Are The World” is a creative work that profiles these killers in conversations with their counterparts, who are Respect, Unity, Self-Worth, Love, and Hope. This is the beginning of a relationship where morals will be questioned; it is complex and full of patience. This creative piece is an educational tool to alter the ignorant perceptions of who these killers are and what they are capable of. Joseph Conrad once noted that “The belief in a supernatural source of evil is not necessary. Men alone are quite capable of every wickedness.”en_US
