Loving The Ugly One - Poem by Reagan A. Latumbo

They were bullied because they are ugly.
They were scolded because they are ugly.
They were ridiculed because they are ugly.
They were beaten because they are ugly.

People disapprove them.
Others humiliated them.
Some hated them.
Everyone judge them.

You can make fun of their ugly face
But you cannot beat them down.
You can let them suffer over and over again
But they stand on what they believe are fair and just.

Why can't we feel what they feel?
Why can't we see their pain?
Why can't we stop hurting them?
I know they are ugly but they are humans and they have a heart.

We were created equal in the eyes of God.
We have qualities that are similar to Him.
He never hurt anyone of us.
He even love those even uglier than us.

If loving the ugly person for you is wrong,
Why don't we observe the way they handle their lives?
If loving the ugly person for you is a waste of time,
Why don't we them live alone away from vile?

We don't have the right to hurt them but we have the right to protect them.
We don't have the right to become an intruder on their lives but we have the freedom to make friends with them.
We don't have the right to scare them but we have the right to let them feel that we are not afraid to be with them.
Lastly, we don't have the right to persecute them but we have the right to love them without scrutinizing them.
