This Should Stop

I maybe one
But I hate it now
The gift that I get
That was suppose to be mine
Now it seems that
I do not want it no more
Cruelty will never die
Among us human

We are all living
In a world that we do not deserve
Racism is controlling us
It is like something
We all depend on

I might be black
I might be white
We all deserve 
To be treated  in the same manner
We are all human
In our veins all runs red blood...
...and racism should be
Out of question

It is not fair
To lose what's truly yours
And to gain what 
Do not belong to you
All because you have no choice
This Should Stop!!!

    Absolutely, racism should stop. However as long as there is fear on this planet there will be those who will want to control others. And nobody is more scared than white folks who are the minority on the planet so they have to control, control, control. Its totally sick and you've written an outstanding poem here, Shirley!! Under the "Form" you can always put Free Verse rather than "I don't know" because that way more folks will get to see your writes ... smile
