Children aren’t born
with prejudice and hate,
but when raised with it
they tend to emulate.
Then prejudice once more
gets passed on down.
Until tolerance and education
start turning it around.
Don’t let cruel words hurt you,
keep your head up and think
‘is this really about me, did I fuel this fire?’
viciousness and cruelty are never necessary,
a point can be made without venom.
Chances are, this is more about a person
full of anger and frustration.
Blindly lashing out…
perhaps you were at the right place,
at the wrong time. Hansi Riley
