A poem about equality

Hang on for a minute...we're trying to find some more stories you might like.

Why are we treated differently based on
what we look like
what we wear
or by what we practice
because frankly
people are ignorant
To look past all emotions
All hardships
And all the work
that this person has gone through
is ignorant

Because you do not know them
You are not them
We were told that here in America
We embrace everybody
But is that really true
Because when someone
Of different skin color
Or religion
Is bullied, I do not believe it

America is sought out to be this
Home for all those who are lost
But how can we make it feel like home
When all we do is tell them
‘Go back to where you came from’
That does not make them feel at home
Instead, they would rather be at war
With another country
Then be at war with themselves

I am sorry but every person should be treated equally
No matter what skin color, religion, sex, or sexual orientation
And that is that.
