hurtful words should not be heard

every day I cry new tears
from the awful things I hear
please take a look and you will see
I'm like you and your like me

the words you speak are very wrong
and my pains real and strong
stop using words of extreme hate
it puts me in a saddened state

think about the words you choose
what if I said them back to you
with a hardened and mean stare
then I think you'd finally care

I may not look the same as you
but my heart can break in two
from the racist things you say
believe me they are not O.K.

open up your eyes and heart
that would be the place to start
really take a look around
everywhere it can be found

different love, shapes and colors
do not make fun of others
the way we look, speak, even act
we're all unique and thats a fact

let me say this one more time
racism is an awful crime
prejudice and hate are too
stop before its done to you
