Racism


Racism

I’m a racist.
It’s the colour of your skin
It’s your home I’ve never seen
It’s the language that you speak
It’s the freedom that you seek
It’s a culture that is new

I’m superior to you

It’s your pain I cannot see
You’re not welcome here with me
It’s the fear I hold inside
It’s my ignorance and pride
I’m not tolerant of change
To my prejudice I’m chained

I’m a racist

To the world my gift will be
A hatefull and divisive legacy.
