Sink into the Silence

Nobody on this earth is normal or perfect
Yet we all try to mold ourselves into
something we are not. Why do people judge?
Because we look different, like our skin color
or the color of our eyes, or our parents last
name; sink into the silence to hear yourself.
Concentrate on how to be yourself not
who people want you to be, just be yourself.
Homophobic racial filth is what this world
has come too; so many generations of war and
trying to change how the world sees you or somebody else; trying to change you.
Why try to change if the differences between
us make us all unique and interesting to one
another? Because we can't stand being different.

Pretty good. It had a pretty nice rhythm about it. My only suggestion would be to work with word choice (like you don't have to keep saying 'yourself'), to give it a more poetic feel. Good job. :)

True, but it is also a message. No matter how hard your life is, be yourself.
