Self Discrimination

 

It’s all discrimination

It’s at the heart of it all

You can’t tell a person’s nature

By seeing that he or she’s tall

 

Nor can you tell by the color of skin

What they feel inside

Or ridicule them for being gay

Forcing their reality to hide

 

It’s painful to be prosecuted

Damned or banned from life

Because you are different

You hide to prevent strife

 

To not reveal who you really are

A person, not a statement of ill

Wanting to live happily

Not suffering life’s most bitter pill

 

Acceptance of anyone’s traits’

Should be of the most concern

Stifling hatred for the unknown

Is something we all need to learn

 

We all suppress some of our souls

To conform to others nearby

And let it pass for the moment

Moaning a despondent sigh

 

Too many times we hide and conceal

To please those who attack and deny

Any who dares admit to themselves

Rather than living a lie.
