Poem Commentary

just my thoughts..

labels

Everyday , we're given the opportunity to do right,
Instead we dismiss the facts , judging based on sight. 
We shake our heads at the homeless person
Never wondering what is their version .

We label many by their actions ,
"crackheads" " junkies" and "hoochies"___
yet, instead of reforming them
we reject them, use them as poster children
of what not to do ...did they have a purpose to
share to.

We look at the single parents as society's biggest problem.
yet , why do they hold back the information to solve them.
doesn't matter of the trials they've endured
just trying to keep their family balanced & secured.

If we can label a criminal for life ,
then couldn't we teach children in school about life's strife.
What's the use of having a degree , If you have no life lessons,
Collecting money, not worrying about those left stressing.


When someone is sick , we shun them , join in the taunting
Instead of supporting them in their time of need,
we promote negative enery to feed .
this is what's killing the breeds.

The poverty stricken people ,give most of what they have
yet, their one of the first to have benefits cut.
When they need someone to agree , everyone's mouth is shut.
they live where no one else can stand, doesn't that mean they have guts.


Many times we have stood back and watched people fall ,
yet , those who are striving we don't support at all .
we act as we're entitled to grow and change ,
but those we don't like have to stay the same.

We tell people to wake up into reality
yet, we mask our true selves , claiming it's actuality.
we spend our time separting ourselves
but our global identity is united.

fighting for the safety of animals 
yet, we ignore the suffering of our people.
we provoke, agitate people no problem
then labels them aggressive,a theat when the person slugs them.

mothers teach their sons to disrespect women
instead of encouraging emotional healing.
making snap minute judgements 
instead of getting to know the person.

We label certain people bad parents
yet, we don't strengthen their parenting skills
we separate them from their children
have they really learned a valuable lesson?

we betray each other to get what we want 
when we're mad, we draw blood
making excuses that Karma is the motive
yet, they've attacked too many times to count.

being comfortable with sex without marriage
when the baby comes , we abandon the carriage.
we wont take time to discuss the ____
we just keep a distance and assume.

we ignore women , when they talk to us 
then we label them a nagger 
we keep them in single households, 
which makes them have to be tough

why is it that we don't miss our well , till it runs dry
we'd do anything , to remain sailing high.
it's not bad to have a healthy dose of pride
as long as it doesn't make another wanna commit ____.

playing fatal favortism, and corrupt competition
kills peoples dreams , keep thems wishing
breeding low mentalities 
instead of traveling versatile possibilities.
