Why must we pick on others,


To their differences,

It hurts to

See and to feel

That pain,

I don’t understand


People can be so cruel.

Why must we put others down

To feel

Strong powerful, cool, and in charge.

I see this everyday


Wonder how can I change this.

Why can’t we accept our differences

I see this and all I can do


Hope that things get better.

Why can’t we accept people for who they are

I hope

That we can

Embrace our differences

And how much we have to offer

We are one in Gods eyes,
