Why is there such disrespect

For all those that we know?

Why is there such prejudice

Are you putting on a show?

 

Why does the color of your skin

Or the gender that you like

Cause people to discriminate

And start a violent fight?

 

Why do we look down upon

Those with less than us?

Our vanity and selfish ways

Are why we scowl in disgust!

 

Is human nature innately loathsome

Or are our actions purely shaped?

Is it wrong to blame the media

With paramount rights at stake?

 

Let’s change this world!

Let’s start today!

But not for us!

For those we hate!
