Here’s another day you’ve been granted, like a wish you never made
Here’s another day of challenges, put on your smile and the rest will fall in place
There’s that same homeless man you wave to every day
The graffiti on the buildings, so fresh you can still smell the paint
The words inked so profanely, your lips sting to repeat
The hatred the artist painted so passionately along the street
Where is the love that we no longer seem to spread?
Where is the helping hand as we quote that God said?
If we are all human
Mere reality of flesh and bones
Why is it so difficult to love our own?
Why do we disgrace by color, religion, sexualities of sorts
Who made them judge us from a Godly standpoint?
Do not dare belittle that of which you’re afraid to accept
We’ve fought too long and hard to backtrack to the same concept
This idea that we need to fight and to depreciate one another
This thought that we decide who is worth more and who shouldn’t bother
You are not great enough to put someone down
You do not have the right to cause anyone a long-termed frown
If you can’t accept it, then keep to yourself
Why fight and banter what is not involving itself
If you don’t understand, being willing to listen
If that isn’t an option, then it’s yourself you should distance
