Why do you do this?
Why… Why do you hate?
Why choose to let difference divide you?
Is there a joke I can’t seem to get?
Is this a game you choose to play?
Is this something you think will just go away?
Well your little game is more like a rollercoaster;
It goes up and down,
Looking better at times and full of promise,
Before plummeting people down into a swirling ball of hate.
You look left and see a protest to make people “go back to where they came from”.
You look right and find a woman beaten and raped because she said “no”.
You turn to run to see a couple mugged and robbed for being gay.
You try to stare ahead for something better...
and there is nothing but hate.
I’m sorry society.
You had a choice,
And you choose hate.
It’s been engraved in you.
You cannot un-engrave it,
Only try to dig it out with the knife you killed love with.
Come back when you realize that you’ve made a mistake.
