Has-Been - Poem by Jeremy Williams

What does it matter if someone
Likes boys instead of girls
It definitely doesn't mean that
They must wear their hair in twirls
It's bad enough that today's society
Is already full of so much anxiety
So let's just lift the prejudice
Create a world where we all can live
No matter if they're black or white
That's no grounds to cause a fight
After all the world has seen
Let discrimination be the has-been.

    I love it! Poetry can always serve as a messanger in my opinion. It tells stories and reveals truths and displays emotions. I love the message in this poem. (Report) Reply

    I by all means dig the message of being open-minded and opposing hate! I kind of think the last two lines may need more work, though. (Report) Reply
