My World - Poem by AHO Speaks

Is my world so narrow and so small
If you are not part of it I care not at all?
Must you be part of family or some one I met
To find a place in my heart to help you forget.

Because you are different and do not look like me
How can I abuse the difference as only something I see.
Some say that is how they have been bred
When in fact it is only something they read.

Can I condem a whole human race
Because of difference or the colour of face?
Need I be prejudiced because of a fractional few
'Do unto others, as you would have others; do unto you'.

When will all the children be healthy and well fed
The deprived part of the living and not the dead.
When will the words that seperate man from man
Be used for a purpose to describe every human.
