What Hate and Violence Have Taught Me Recently
Open my mind and my eyes wider
Be more cautious with my humor.
Be more fragile with my words
No matter who and what people they may be
Everyone is in this world
for a good or bad reason
Have more compassion for people.
Make the world a brighter place
Never be ashamed of yourself for being too sensitive.
Your feelings matter to a certain extent.
question my equality
your freedom is important
Think the US is still standing –
For freedom and justice for all
Be the one who is stronger than the enemy.
By not letting the one thing you fear –
Overcome and consume your identity
Don’t hold back your feelings
As long as they are expressed correctly.
Do not act on your darkest desires.
The repercussions will not be kind.
Think about happiness and goodness.
Good fortune will come your way
Don’t be afraid to cry
It is your tears that purify the water
When a country is too blind to see
People tormented by their skin color.
A controversial president running the country –
Leading the way deeper and deeper into turmoil
Making choices and decisions
that are affecting the future
That they are morally and ethically wrong
Violence anywhere and everywhere
Broken bones and bloodshed
inappropriate use of weapons
Manipulate people’s beliefs and views.
Thinking that the United States is much more dominant and superior
than any other country in the world
When all the politicians want power
To boost his ego even more
Taxes are getting scandalous
absurd grocery prices
When Democrats and Republicans Can’t Agree
On important issues that are faced on a daily basis.
Equal rights –
I respect blacks
Dignity for people with developmental disabilities
Acceptance of transgender people
Pride for gay people
Freedom, can you hear my cry for mercy?
The glory days of rock music popularity are gone
Make anti-government moves
That they are unjustified and unpatriotic.
The economy in shambles
The 2016 Presidential Candidates Who Were Absolutely Ridiculous
The government more corrupt than ever
When truth and justice are getting harder to come by
illegal policemen –
What happened to serve and protect?
The decline in respect
lack of compassion
What makes people happy
What makes people sad
Children committing shameful crimes
Adults committing heinous crimes
Friendship is not taken for granted
Families falling apart
love being silenced
Now freedom, can you hear my cry for mercy?
