A Same Different Story

October 25, 2010

I am no Different from you
I have friends, go shopping for shoes
Have a mom and dad
Which makes me very glad

But I am an Outsider
Hiding in the corners
In the Shadows
From the Scary monsters

That are called The Harassers
All men are created equal,
That is just a lie
Because millions of people die for the truth

I am like a Black sheep
I have nowhere to go
And no one to go to
I cry for help

Looking around at the Bright Dark world
But you just laugh and mock me
Looking for the answers, and looking for the truth
But it is all a mystery to me

What makes me Different from you?
Every infant is born Different,
So what is there to Hate?
What is there to Discriminate?

I find no mercy here
Abandoned and alone
And no one to hold me Tight
And to tell me that everything is going to be Alright

There is no use for me in this world
Because I am always examined under a microscope
Just always getting those mean Stares
And those Cold shoulders

For my last minutes on this earth
Are going away
And so is my existence
No one even cared to listen
Because now, I am Dead
But the Dead still speaks beyond the graves

The author's comments:
Even though we are in the 21st century, there is still discrimination in the world. I would like to create awareness about it.

It is not suicidal at all! it just talks about how this person feels and i bet so many other people in the same racial group feel the same way!
