Prejudice

Your words cause me to wonder.

Humanity, you oppress.

On earth we’re all-inclusive,

All Mankind is blessed.

Not straight,

Not white,

Not rich,

Not west.

The gay,

The black,

The poor,

The depressed.

Your narrow field of vision,

Your distorted point of view,

Your bigotry, your cruelty,

Your bias, nothing new.

You scoff at all the differences,

The colours and the creeds,

Jeer at God’s creation,

His diverse, established deeds.

Are you to question

His creation

His breath on all Mankind?

Retire alone

Within your cave,

So perfection, you may find.

When you arise

Above the ground

And truth assails your eyes

Recognise equality;

Despising

Is not wise.
