Discriminate

Location

Discriminate sounds much like hate

And that coincidence is surely fate

 

Millions of cries can be heard

And all because of that one word

 

One can't control the melanin in their skin

And yet somehow that represents their character within

 

Humanity goes even further by splitting us into groups

Saying we can't relate because you are a German and I'm a Jew

 

That she is black and he is white

And even if it's love something isn't quite right

 

This God-forsaken word stains history

Even though its true origin is a mystery


Leading many to hate because of differences

Judging based on pure inferences

 

Like calling people savage because they are different from you

And yet all the savage actions are what you do

 

It causes hatred that fuels nations

Leading to planes crashing into innocent patrons

 

Just close your eyes and imagine this was all gone

That everyone didn't feel separate but in fact just felt like one

 

So if I could get rid of one thing

It would be the thought to discriminate thus ending much suffering
