I used to spread hateBut

I used to spread hate

But now I preach acceptance

I always judged people for the things I never understood

But I never tried to understand

I once viewed discrimination as an outsider

But now I receive it first hand

If I could turn back time

I would use my voice to spread the words:

‘They never asked for this’

I can't go back

But I can use my voice now

I won't close my mouth

But I might bite

I used to spread hate

But now I preach acceptance

This poem is about: 
Me
My country
Our world
