The Beautiful Diverse MAG

By Unknown, Unknown, Unknown

So much hate in thisworld,
         Time,
                      Age,
                              Century.
Somuch death by so many people over the smallest fault,
         Against them,
                      Theysee,
                              Theycannot tolerate.
Fear and shame haunt ourcities,
         Towns,
                  Homes,
                           Hearts.
Thehearts of those not welcomed by too many:
         Latinos,
                  Negroes,
                            Homosexuals,
                                     The Beautiful Diverse
For being who theyare,
         What they are,
                   Why they are,
                           Where they are
In our highsociety of lip services of tolerance,
          Love,
                   Peace,
                            Community ...
Hypocrisy.
For unto those diverse we force hate,
         Anger,
                  Slander,
                            Prejudice,
                                     Pain.
From the bigots of ourmetropolises comes
          Hate,
                   Torment,
                            Ruin,
                                     Death.
And intogreat hearts we high beings plant the seeds of shame,
         Fear,
                   Despair,
                            Self-loathing horror.
A kind of hate that clings to one's brainsapping,
         Ripping,
                   Screaming,
                                     Probing,
Agonizingly real andunshakable as the flesh and blood that bind us.

Favorite Quote:
“The power of a glance has been so much abused in love stories, that it has come to be disbelieved in. Few people dare now to say that two beings have fallen in love because they have looked at each other. Yet it is in this way that love begins, and in this way only.”

WOW That is DEEP and i agree with everything you are saying!
