Discriminate

To Discriminate, is to create Hate.
Whether it be over religion or over weight.
To expose the differences to hurt someone else.
Only to cover up something in the true self.
So different, so yet so one in the same.
If there’s one thing in this word I wish I could tame,
It’s the cruelty in the heart, soul and the mind.
In this world today it’s the blind leadin’ the blind.
Equality and rights, they were all a dream.
Brought together by the people to mend the seam.
To Bridge the gap, between white and black.
To get rid of the stereotypes that held us back.

Discrimination is truly a scar.
But to look at a scar is to know who you are.
An open wound, infected and bad.
It hurts my heart and makes me mad.
When I see all these groups standing at the door,
Holding bats, telling me who to vote for./
Then is that really Fair?
One of me, Against that big mucley pair.
Tryin to promote peace without using it.
To me it sounds like you’re bein’ a hypocrit.
If you do what you say, And say what you do,
Like Dr.King others will follow you.
So I leave you with this, Just one bit of advice,
Whom ever you meet in this world
Don’t discriminate, be nice.

This was a good poem, although it didn't read like any poem I've read on this site. Nevertheless, I liked your message and your clever wording. Well done!
