Universal Hate

You hate them because they’re different
You hate them because they’re there
You may not even know them
It wouldn’t even matter if you did, you still wouldn’t care

They could be funny, funny, smart, kind
But you don’t seem to see that do you?
They could be tortured, sad, or miserable
But to them you’re always blind

Because they’re not you in any way, shape or form
You shun them, ridicule them
Run them in to the ground
You think that because they’re not you, they’re not a norm

You call them strange, weird, freaks
They’re below you and your peers
They’re the scum of the earth
What do you care if their houses are cold and their ceiling leaks

They do nothing to you, except breathe
Yet you hate them so willingly
Do you see the problem here?
If you can’t then maybe you should just leave

No one deserves the hate you give
So willingly to those you don’t know
Who walk the halls dying inside
Wishing only for you to stop so they can live

If they hate you in return
It is only as a mirror they can’t help
They say you get what you give
So when will you learn

If you stop hating them then who
Knows what this world could do then
If we all stopped the hate and just
Learned to live together, think what we could do

The places we could go in peace
The people we could meet
The things we could learn
And the unnatural death toll decrease.

I wrote this during a school presentation Thursday November 15th, because the speaker asked us to. I was really surprised that I wrote anything at all, But I hope you enjoy reading it!
