Discrimination the act that we say
Cannot happen to us but is it true?
Is it that easy not to do?
We think and think…
We have to find fault in one,
It is so easy more than done.
Finding one in a million
Faults of a trillion.
Think about the shadow
That blocks you from being a weirdo.
But, you already are
A weirdo…

All are equal they always say
Are we really, we can’t say that today.
I thought that it wasn’t the skin
Look at the world we are in.
I never felt superior
Or cheaper
Then the one next to me
But I am discriminating
And hurting
Someone I never even knew.
