Our Purpose as Humans

One day I began to see- when I placed my blessings in front of me-
That I cannot be clouded by negativity
I know this world has been broken
that’s why these words must be spoken
Stand up, Stand out, Never stand down
Look up, Look out, Never look down
Cheer up, Help out, Hope is all around

Those who are homeless are human too
They once had goals and dreams just like me
and just like you
You might be surprised how many have children or a wife
Buying a single meal and speaking equally could
change a life

Some people have a sexual orientation that varies from you
That doesn’t mean that their hearts are any less true
Don’t buy into the stereotypes or the things they portray
There is nothing disturbing about being
trans, bi, lesbian, or gay

Skin color is nothing but a different beautiful decoration
There is absolutely no need for racial discrimination
Spend a day with a man of another race
and you will see that we are all a piece of the human race
Stereotypes are just superiority that we try to chase
But love should be the only motivator of this life we race

Before you put down someone for being disabled
ask yourself what it means to be “mentally stable”
If you’ve ever spent time with someone labeled
“challenged” or “retarded”
You will hear the innocent way they view the world and wonder
how such a terrible reputation started

The way the brain works always varies
That doesn’t mean differences are bad, less than, or scary

I believe that differences keep the world from being ordinary
It is the underdogs that make this earth extraordinary

I believe change is not only possible, it is vital
Have you seen statistics on how many Americans alone
are depressed, impovished and
suicidal?

Let alone the countries we call “third world”
As though we are so great being the first
If we don’t reach out to them, aren’t we really being the worst?

I look forward to the day when I see the world change
From a sphere of hate to a home where no one
is made to feel strange

Stand up, Stand out, Never stand down
Look up, Look out, Never look down
Cheer up, Reach out, Our purpose has been found

Artist's Description

I am very proud of where I have gone as a writer- both comedic and poetically. But I feel like this is one of my best works yet.
