Discrimination Needs To Die

Everybody should be treated
With the courtesy that's needed
To survive---not live in fear
Their identity will disappear
Because others wont accept
Who they are with pure respect
The traits their born with instantly
Should be loved so equally
From people with bad ideas
That bully others everywhere
Who don't fit the "normal" crowd
So they are shunned and shut out
Leaving them so scarred and hurt
They're forever on alert
Wishing they could fit inside
A world where they don't have to hide
And be welcomed with hello's 
Friendly faces where they go
No more worries pain or hate
Dreaming of this feels great
Wishing this dream will be real
For every outcast who can feel
The wrath of each and every bully
It is pure insanity
That we all can't get along
Discrimination is just wrong

    As a gay man, I understand discrimination pretty well, so once again you've penned a poem to which I can relate. Very socially-conscious and great message; excellent work, Sweet Pea! <3

    Robin, how true. Sadly, I live in fear. I know it does not show much here. But, I happen to be an outcast... I pulled myself away from society 3 years ago. I hide at work.. At home, I log on to the soup, where I'm like an outcast... Did you know that here at the shop we have poets, whom others will not accept. I will not tell you in what way. However, I would have not made here on the soup with my PEN NAME, if it was not for wonderful poets like you. Discrimanation and judgment is wrong.-mail

    Your words are so very true Robin. But in the end self acceptance is the key. When one except him or herself, they don't care what others think. Thanks for the read, my friend. Keep on writing your truths, this is the best reason for writing. A writer should always express their feelings....peter
