Why Hate

you don't like him because he is caucasin
 she hate him because he's black
 they look down on them because they are Asian 
we are afraid of them because they are from Iraq
as humans we can be so mean 
do you really think you can get into heaven that way
 tell me ! how can you love the lord who you've never seen
 and have so much hate for someone you see everyday
this has gone on since way back when 
racism is still alive 
someone has always hated someone for the skin they were in
 so how do we expect to survive
if we don't try  to erase the hate 
our families will never be united
 for we have already sealed our fate 
as long as our brothers and sisters are divided

    So true. Wish there was a way to resolve this. Sometimes it seems like there has been a lot of progress, but then something happens...Thank you for expressing this in your poem.
