Inspired by the song "The Silent Truth" by The Brothahood
which I found by boo boo on facebook


Earth, Human Tolerant?

Each time I look
judgmental people everywhere,
basing their opinions on religion, colour
that's just not fair

Why on race, looks
should one be judged
statistics on racism, the truth
i'm sure they're fudged,

"Where on Earth is tolerance?"
I sigh
the world's hate makes me
break down and cry.

Liz...too bad we don't have more people like you around here...
Love the poem and love what you are saying in it...

One final comment, which I hope doesn't sound to Pollyanish...

There actually would be no need for 'tolerance' if people
would just look at other people as individuals instead of
judging them by where they came from, what their skin color is,
etc...but I guess I'm spinning my wheels
