“I Don’t Understand” Poem – WBC

This poem was written as part of my Creative Writing Class in November of 2010.

It was written the week the Westboro Baptist Church came to town.


I don’t understand
The words you say
The feelings you feel
The ideas you spread

But most of all
Why you do this
Why you spread your hate
Why you come here

What I understand most is
That we are stronger than you
That you will not stop us
That we will stand together
We are who we are and you will not change us
