Names

Mon, 08/01/2016 - 19:41 -- Equell

Why must we be identified by such names?

I feel as though in our society,

There are more names that project

A negative idea towards us then positive ones.

 

Beautiful

Kind 

Wonderful

 

The words that once heard send a slight shiver to you because in a way,

You waited to be called by those names as they so lovingly slipped from these lips of mine.

 

Beautiful

Kind 

Wonderful

Nerd

Faggot

Slut

 

Why must we create such words that give out

Such a negative cloud of sadness?

Why must we label each other so disgracefully,

Instead of complimenting the attributes that we want to be noticed for,

And not the ones we are too ashamed of to say outloud?

This poem is about: 
Me
My community
My country
Our world
