IF Maturity Was Involved
Paranoid, hypocritical and self-righteous.
With a mix of self-centeredness,
And statistics gathered on a daily basis...
To depict percentages of which races sit,
In categories to ensure themselves on top of it...
Just to keep others reminded,
In divisions they have created to inflict...
That racial disparaties kept documented,
Are for purposes only to have their insecurities...
Not observed as the cause or their flawed mentalities,
As main reasons conflicts are permitted to exist.
IF maturity was involved in any of this,
One's intelligence, color of skin or religious preference...
Would be accepted as benefits to achieve a united humanity,
To undo and rid all the nonsense.
This perspective is dismissed as a sickness is permitted,
With no cure to heal or mend...
The foolishness of hatred,
That has diseased the mindset of the people.
