"If you want to make the world a beter place, take a look at yourself and make that change."
-Michael Jackson from the song 'Man in the Mirror"


When you look in the mirror,
What do you see?
Your true self,
Or what you want to believe?

When a stranger looks you straight in the eye,
What do they see?
The monstrous, vicious part of you,
Or who you want to be?

When you realize who you want to be,
Do you choose to do good in your life,
Or do you choose to spread a message of hatred and evil?

Acceptance is key in this fight to survive.
Accept yourself, accept all love, accept all races, and accept all culture.
We must accept our world.

Love is key in this fight to survive.
Love yourself, love your friends, and love this Earth.
Just Love.

This poem was something I wrote because, I have very strong feelings about right and wrong, accepting others, and treating everyone as an equal.
