The Dirty Looking Glass

The world would be a better place if people didn’t have to look through a dirty looking glass.
Walking along the path of life,
	It’s supplied with collections of pain and strife.
	People judging each other’s races,
	Spitting nasty words into their faces.
	Everybody is diverse from one another,
	But they still can’t seem to love each other.

	I live in a world where everybody seems to only care,
	About my skin tone, my face, and the clothes I wear.
	Just because I eat more and put on more weight,
	Doesn’t give you the right to hate.
	My mind might work different than yours,
	Maybe that’s why you filled my heart with sores.
	They leave my feelings in the dust, 
	Making me disbelieve in the theory of trust.

	If everybody could stop for a minute and see that life is not a game,
	Yeah, we are not all the same,
	But that doesn’t give you the right to take away my power,  strength, and might.
	If the world could just open up their eyes and realize that we can live life,
	Without suffering from pain and strife.
	We changed the way our lifestyles were made,
	The equality of our hearts is starting to fade.
	So, yes, the world would be a better place if the world’s glass was clear to see through.
