Dreamers Then to Dreamers Now

by Pier D., 14

From ‘dirty pols’ to ‘illegal humans,’
Grandparents who faced oppression,
Now the oppressors themselves.

Our mothers’ parents,
Who got spit on years ago,
They now glare down
On a younger version of themselves.

Where is the difference between 
Dreamers now and Dreamers then?

More than hypocritical, 
Their actions are a Sin. 

You are no different,
Yet you are no better.
