One and another

Entering a world, a cold cruel place for some of the unlucky ones Race, gender, sexual orientation, accomplishments, assets, pant size, you name it What you are is a result of where you stand in these things. If you have all the right requirements You just may be accepted. But those not possessing the right requirements Those born into a destiny they may never hold the strength to fulfill The winding vine of pure evil creeps deliberately, hate is planted in the depths of the untrained mind Judgment, loathing, murderous, ignorant, fearful and malicious thoughts toward some Those that are floating through this gray, lonely place. It is no place for you that much has been made known Fighting off the thoughts of hate, judgment, self-loathing; just to make it through another day How can one go on, how can one continue when hate is all that is received For destiny has been previously decided for some. However, as you go on through your day If there is one thing here that you take with you Realize the pain of ONE Is NO different Than the pain of ANOTHER. No matter your race, size, gender or skin color.
