Short Poems

Innocence Lost
The mockingbird’s song
Fills the streets with sweetest sound
Until hate silences.

Father’s Love
Atticus, my guide
Teaches me how to see right
With love and patience.

Fight for Justice
Tom Robinson’s pain
Innocent and falsely tried
May justice prevail.

Childhood Memories
Scout and Jem’s world
Maycomb County in the 30s
Forever cherished.

Medium Poems

1. “Innocence Lost”
A mockingbird soars,
A symbol of purity,
But in a world of hate,
Its song is met with cruelty.

Injustice prevails,
And innocence is shattered,
A victim of prejudices,
A life forever battered.

The mockingbird still sings,
A hymn of hope and grace,
A reminder of what once was,
Of a forgotten peaceful place.

2. “Atticus”
A man of rare courage,
Fighting for what is right,
In a town steeped in prejudice,
His stand is a shining light.

A father to his children,
Teaching them the way,
Of love and kindness,
In a world that’s gone astray.

A hero to the oppressed,
Defending the innocent and meek,
A true embodiment of justice,
In a world that’s often bleak.

Atticus, your legacy lives on,
A symbol of honor and truth,
A beacon of hope,
To the hearts of both old and youth.

3. “Maycomb County Blues”
In the land of cotton,
Where racism runs amok,
Where justice is a myth,
And prejudices run unchecked.

In Maycomb County,
Ignorance reigns supreme,
The color of skin,
Determines a person’s dream.

The mockingbirds cry,
Their song drowned by hate,
In a world where justice,
Is often too late.

Maycomb County, what have you become?
A place of sorrow and despair,
A world without kindness,
And a future that’s not fair.

We must learn from your mistakes,
And strive to be better each day,
For in a world of great strife,
Love and understanding are the only way.
