Racism affects people’s life
Without them noticing
You could once be on top of the world
But once someone opens their mouth
You fall back to the world you know of
The words are like spells being casted on you
And every spell makes you fall in pain
When someone walks in the street
They walk in fear, for they now that beyond their house
It’s a world full of hatred and cruelty
No one ever gets by without hatred
Flooding out of others’ mouths
No one may understand the reasons for this
No one tries to change the beings of others
Without the true knowing of the reasons they do this
Without the understanding of the stories of others
No one will change if you are not willing to change.
People may have hatred in themselves but it doesn’t
Mean to describe them to others in the hatred full of cruelty.
We may have different colors different reasons but it doesn’t mean
We can treat each other with no love and hatred
When we can learn from each otherAnd show the reason of love and caring.
