labels are for clothes

that girl is dressed in black

from her head down to her toe

her name lost in a stereotype 

that some may call "emo"

 

that boy who holds his lovers hand

and smiles as he kisses his lips

is seen as only a single word 

homo, gay, faggot just "fits"

 

that man with the turban round his head

and skin slightly darker than yours

is seen as a terrorist in the eyes of our race

even if that man hates war.

 

that girl, that boy, that man

some how fit in a category to us

and the labels are sewn like a mask to hide

the true person hidden in the dust

 

theres a heart beat inside each persons chest

and they breath in the air just as you

but are seen as their own separate species 

blending in with those they act simmilar too

 

we are not shirts, we are not cans of food

we are a personality in ourselves

we are individual people in a place we call home

blur the lines, maybe time will tell

This is brilliant it really captivates the reader. The amazing part is that you don't add yourself to the poem. most poets have to add their personal story to connect, but you didn't and that's how you know you found a great poet!
