I'm Not Like You

I've got to stay involved.
I overheard terrible things one 
day.
You'll slain, scorch and stake 
me.
The problem's never solved.
I can feel it catching up to me.
It'll maim, torch and slaughter 
me.
 
Burning at the stake.
A suspect of magic.
You're making a mistake.
Kill me because I'm not like 
you.
Passing by a river.
Walk over hot coals.
Drown me while I quiver.
Another life that you stole.
 
As unstable as you are.
As frightful as can be.
Shaking on my death bed.
I can no longer hide and flee.
You hate me because I'm 
different.
Not diluted in the head.
Grab your torch and pitchfork.
Chase me till I'm dead.
 
The persecution that we face.
For not living a lie.
Death, rape and torture.
Say your last goodbye.
 
Imposing your beliefs on,
People, places, laws.
Is wrong in every way.
We should learn to remove our 
flaws.
