The current political atmosphere is so charged with racism and prejudice. I was going through some of my writings in my xanga archives, and came across this poem.
Feel the tension in the shoulders, eyes glaring, cold steel daggers
locks on hearts, with ageless rust; how my soul laments and staggers
against this prejudice!
Humanity overpowered, building walls like forts around
to protect from the onslaught, unarmed men bound to their ground
wailing against this prejudice!
What things we do with our minds, unable to understand humanity
sacrificing others to attain national self-seeking: blind passions, unexplored truths defying sanity; carnivorous pride hugging prejudice!
