Tell Me


Do you read the news?
What about the comments?
What do you feel?

Well to be frank I do.
I read both and comments,
Mostly meaningless,

I do not smile but laugh.
I laugh; racism and stupidity.
And feel sorry for,

Not me! I am not racist.
Neither am I in rush to judge.
Is important to say:

I am not a blindfolded.
As are most of the comments,
I see come at end.

I feel sorry, am so sorry
For the blind, narrow-minded
Commentators and

I wonder what the family
Of dead, insulted by comment
Feels; can, maybe

Waits for the time, turn to
Read the news and a comment
On news of a dead

They can equally be racist.
Toward us, a stupid comment
That burns our souls.

I?
I wait, afraid of the hatred; tear in my eyes, and a sentence on my lips: “Please act wise.”
