a bad R.E.P.

We have none of those rights

and not a reason to hate

so please

let go

of your fear

.

You can’t even see them

the children right before your eyes

the children in your home

in your town

in your country

in your world

fighting to be free

all trapped by the prejudices

of this pained, perverted world

fears

hatred

that keep us from loving one another

despite the fact that we are all

the same

.

We have none of those rights

and not a reason to hate

so please

let go

of your fear

.

We hate those who look different

who wear the wrong clothing

who don’t make the right amount of money

who love and make love to the wrong kind of person

We hate those

.

We have none of those rights

and not a reason to hate

so please

let go

of your fear

.

We hate the ones who serve us

or the ones that look slightly different

because servitude is wrong?

because tastes and genetics are wrong?

because we have the right to choose who gets to love whom?

.

We have none of those rights

and not a reason to hate

so please

let go

of your fear

.

Your children are begging you

your friends and your peers

your loved ones

just want to be loved

.

Look around you

can’t you see them?

weeping in their closets

yearning for something more

.

We have none of those rights

and not a reason to hate

so please

let go

of your fear

.

Don’t be afraid

of these poor children

We have none of those rights

and not a reason to hate

so please

let go

of your fear

.
