Treasure Island

Ibrar Siddiqi

(28.02.1970 / United Kingdom)

So quick to judge


Why is it, people are so quick to judge
whether it is your colour, race or religion.
I just hate when people make comments.
Just because you are ignorant
it soon shows,

There was a pretty Goth
who was the victim of an attack.
A bunch of animals killed her
Just becuase she dressed in black.
My heart breaks when animals strike.
I just want to kill those who dislike.

I may not know about your life
But I would rather know you for who you are.
If I dont like what I see
I don't say anything for you to hate me.

Hatred is a stong emotion.
But Love is the answer.
Life is too short to worry
about the little things.
Put away your hate and anger
Go say hello to a complete stranger.
I see people walikng their dogs
Or out for a run.
Saying hello gives me a lift
Makes bridges and not divide
For hate, creates a rift.

    A well expressed sentiment Ibrar. You have a proof-reading chore to do however, although it does not detract from the poem's central theme. Rgds, Ivan (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
