So, I got to thinking last night about society and we each have our own set of prejudices and how society can treat people who are different to them, so I wrote a poem about it. It’s not my best, but I hope you enjoy!
Cowering in the dark,
Waiting for the arrow to hit its mark
For them to come and take me
To where they want me to be
They howl and scream outside our door
Starting at the count of four
They keep trying to break it down
Pound by bloody pound
All because we’re different
All because we’re new
All because we don’t conform
And our lifestyles don’t fit the “norm”
We are being true
To our beliefs just the same as you
Yet this is a crime
For some reason that I’m unable to define
But I can’t change you
You can’t change me
But here’s what we can do
To try and live in harmony
Don’t try and kill me
Just accept me and see
What life can be
If we just turn the key
And unlock the mystery
Instead of life on a leash
As I said, it isn’t my best poem, but it’s an attempt. I burst out laughing this morning as I was looking at it as I realized that it could apply to what me and my siblings are like when we argue of whatever DVD we are going to watch -they want to watch some stupid kid flick and I want to watch something SANE.
Anyway, have a great day/night!
