Why are people so prejudice?
Everyone was born with a heart, so why be heartless?
Hating on an individual for no reason doesn’t do any justice
So check this.
The color of any ones skin does not define who they are
Fighting and fussing for no reason won’t get our so far
First impression or no impression, don’t judge one by appearance
We must treat everyone equally because no one’s on clearance
We are a community, so correct me, if I’m wrong
We must all stand together as one and stay strong.

to kill a mocking bird, a novel by Harper Lee, inspired me to create this poem.
