“I exist not to be loved and admired, but to love and act. It is not the duty of those around me to love me. Rather, it is my duty to be concerned about the world, about man.” - Janusz Korczak


We judge them
Make fun of them
We hurt them deeply
But I don't understand
Why them
Why the ones we classify
Classify as homosexuals, bisexuals, and transsexuals
What did they ever do to us
They don't harm us
They shouldn't have to go through
Go through all the pain we put them through
They are humans
Just like us
I wish we could all accept them
Allowing them to no longer feel scared
We hurt them
But we hate to get hurt for our secrets
It doesn't make sense
They should be able to live a normal life
Not being treated differently
Why them

This poem is about how we all make fun of people we consider different because of their sexuality.

Now Cinderella don't you go to sleep, it's such a bitter form of refuge, oh don't you know the kingdom's under siege, and everbody needs you. - The Killers

This is pretty ogod, but it could be great with maybe different spacing and word choice. I love the message of it, though. If you have the time I would love to hear your feedback on my work! Please and thanks if you can!

Like it, but it would have been great with maybe a bit more a variety on the word choice. Overall a great poem with a great message, check mine out sometime? Please and thank you!

The meaning behind it was excellent! Maybe some re-wording, or different angle to better the flow. But other wise, really enjoyed it!
