The "R" word
If I could change one thing in this world,
It would be how people use "retard"
Some call it the "R" word
Others, call it mentally handicapped.
I just simply do not say it.
It hurts people
It kills them
And its wrong
It's wrong to sit there and insult someone for something they can't control
It's wrong to sit there and insult one of God's own children,
His own creation
Who are you?
To sit there and do this to someone.
You are no one.
No one to sit there and call someone this word,
When you don't even know what their world is like.
They all struggle.
Day and night
What is simple to us is hard for them
And we should acknowledge it.
Calling someone "retard" is wrong
It's cruel and it hurts
No more "r" word.
