Discrimination Infects - Poem by Lovina Sylvia Chidi
Correct me if you can on this aspect
But please don't disrespect my intellect
In all retrospect your soft words affect
The pain you set out to inject
Have an absolute side effect
I hear the stereotype sound effect!
It is the reaction to an age or skin colour effect
Discrimination infects everyone direct or indirect
The words you don't say show utter disrespect
Why do you allow your thoughts to misdirect?
Discrimination from you is not what I expect
I know my life is not obviously perfect
But I am no object of social functional defect
You critically judge me while standing erect
I am your negative subject that you love to select
I am an intelligent and beautiful project
But every single day, my ego is one I must protect
Friends and lovers I must carefully select
I constantly have to question and reflect
Each day I am made the number one suspect
Discrimination is one we must dissect
Discrimination is one we must all eject and reject
Discrimination affects everyone direct or indirect
A typical conventional behaviour is what people expect
Today culture is so diverse that we can all connect
But what is ethnic behaviour?
But what is gay behaviour?
But what is disabled personality?
But what is religious personality?
But what is age personality and behaviour?
Discrimination - who is the architect?
For those that show ignorant and unintelligent neglect
Inspect your morals on discrimination and learn to respect
Correct me if I am incorrect
Discrimination infects and affects everyone direct or indirect
