Close Minded Ignorance

Looking around I seem to notice
Ignorance and closed mindness
Form a lot people who
Don't even understand the clues
Life is showing them each day
That's here and will not go away
Like couples of all shapes and sizes
Ages, colors and surprises
That hold hands staying so strong
When these people treat them wrong
Or a handicap that's a deterrent
Not making life very pleasant
As they smile and are proud
With the gifts they are allowed
Homelessness is growing fast
But they will try and look past
At the hardships faced each day
Positive they'll be O.K.
Someone sick and very ill
Will not surrender cause they will
Not worry about tomorrow
Thankful for each minute borrowed
So if you are one of those
People with hearts and minds closed
Just remember you will lose
Perseverance will just prove
The underdog will win this fight
Holding on to faith so tight
Helping them defeat a war
Against those with a closed heart door

    Close-mindedness really should end up on the list of the world's most heinous crimes. Nobody deserves the catastrophe a closed mind brings.

    Being a gay man, I have suffered much discrimination at the expense of such close-minded people, so I really connected with this poem. Great write, Robin! :) <3
