Equality


Superior?
Is that what you think you are?
Superior! ?
because your skin is lighter?
because your hair is shorter?
because your life is better?
because your voice is deeper?
why?
I thought you knew
knew about racism
knew about sexism
knew about how it is wrong
knew how we all are the same inside
but,
since you are SUPERIOR
we have no equality to you
bow
bow to the superior
bow...

    Good poem.Final surrender? Surrender with disgust is not equality.Any superior will bow down if wise. The right knowledge will convince ones ignorance. (Report) Reply

    Superior is a feeling of self importance that is so inflated until somebody sensible sticks a pin in all that hot air! !
    Equality is freedom for everybody! !
