Don't Judge Me for Existing

Why do you give me a hard look from your face? that you don't like what you see? that I'm from a different race? Why can't we see eye to eye? why do I disgust you, like you don't wanna be near me would you please tell me? tell me why you hate me? Do you hate me because of the color of my skin? like I'm a disease? you don't think I have desires? that I have needs? We aren't from the same race, but by soul, we live in the same world. You may think I'm nothing, just push me into the mud, knowing we both have the same colored blood. You can't judge me by my appearance, or by my race, or even the color on my face. Say what you want to say, you can't judge me, for I didn't choose to exist in the first place.

I loved reading this. This poem illustrates what goes on everyday unfortunately. I can't imagine the pain this would cause. Beautifully written.

It is really not fair, that anyone would show any kind of disregard for a person without really getting to know them, we are all flesh and blood, and the skin doesn't matter, not all butterflies have the same wings but they all fly. I enjoyed your read, the only thing is that your form should be free verse, not acrostic, there is a link up top for form descriptions, this is a great place to learn, as I have done. I can tell you have lots to say and look forward to more. :)
