Discrimination

We are pushed in living And believing That world has changed And liberty is inked with golden page Go all over And you shall discover The practice of apartheid Very much strongly held Discrimination’s like a snake Its teeth in poisoned prejudice, Causing ache Discrimination, abolished all warmth and spirit And returned with a new hate Relishing its pain brought Never thought of halt It is lack of understanding That goes on unending Whether in advanced countries Or countries of poverties Color plays important part People may not say on face but start The use of language in slur manner This creates bitter feelings When you are in minority Or not in majority You shall be kept at bay From power and have no say This leads inequality Imbalance in taking decision directly Show the intolerance And sometimes witness full violence Why do you think you're better If your culture is not the same? Yes, maybe you seem different But deep inside all are the same. Why do they think they're better? If one is black and one is white, If one is man and one is woman. They are the same, that is their right. If one is straight and one is gay, They are no different, just the same If one is Christian and one is Jew, All come from God, we are the same. try snd get to know all people, And show them what you think and do, You'll see how others live their lives. When you like them, then they'll like you. If one learns to understand And respect all points of view, Then peace on Earth must surely come It is up to you. And you. And you....
