We Need To Fix Everything

The world we live in sees
black and white
and girl and boy
and different and
unique
and blends it all together
with right
and wrong. We
say
everyone is equal
but we mock the boy in the nursing
class. we say
everyone is equal
but oh, women leaders are weak
and men are stronger
and rape isn’t always
rape
because she was drunk
and the boys were so young. We say
everyone is equal
but the gays can’t get married
and the interracial couple
makes
some people call her crazy
and we call all people equal
but criticize
the kids who do not excel in school,
whose minds see colors we
cannot, whose minds are
on a different level.

The criticism from the voices of a few
affect the lives of many.
No one should be afraid of the skin
they live in
and the mind they
nurture. This world
is in a constant state
of bringing someone down and it
so entirely
blatant and so entirely sad.
