Your parents have told you, since you were born,
Of the scary man offering sweets. "Stay away," they would warn.
And sure, they were right! To give you the advice
But... did they remember to tell you there is nice...
Outside in the world is beauty and love
Such things go unseen and we may shove
Away poistivity. Hey, wait!
Why don't we change this form of hate.
Keep common sense, yes no doubt
But where is our faith, our hope... we need more of that about
Open your eyes,
Don't use them as spies.
Trip out of trepidation
And into joy for this petition.
Don't look at the man living on the street
As freaky or creepy as he picks at his feet.
No, look a little closer, he is a piece of art-
A true beauty, made by God, and he has a heart.
Don't judge by color, shape, or size
Open your mind, start to be wise.
People are people, and deserve to be viewed too
With the same gentle soul you want viewing you
Let go, get rid!
of the fear, judgments, and negativity amid
They are not healthy, nor strong, nor cool
They just hold you back and make you a fool.
So I say again, we must change this
In order to make life surrounded in bliss
Your parents have told you, since you were born, of the beauty that lays
Inside and outside of you each day.
So let's change our hearts, minds, and eyes
That beauty does lie among all of us!
