Giving us life
Giving us hope
We were free
Of that kind of
Many of us
To our knees
Even as you
Lay in my arms
While our church
Whispering to me
Be free my love
Lesser men would
Have gone mad
But not I
I would not
That kind of

12th grade, anger, angst, anxiety, discrimination, imagery, immigration,
wars drugs poverty
famine fear rape death
that's the impoverished world
desperate immigrants flee
and yet we won't let them in
go die on the other side of our new wall
stay away from what’s ours
we should be ashamed to call ourselves Christians
there's no kindness in our hearts
or tolerance for others
even though God's commandment
says to love our neighbors as we love ourselves

People are commonly different
Symbol of diversity piece
Pure race doesn’t exists
Color and creed are just an identity
Believe only in human history
God sculptured them from clay
People are equally created
Having many opposites
But respecting others taste
When everyone is treated equal
Nothing appears but peace in hand
Discrimination, disunity and, suffering won’t be born anymore

black african american, blue, depression, discrimination, heartbroken, , black love,
My black bleeds the same color red
My black breaths the same air
My black causes death instead
My black should live loud and free
My black is me.
My black loves you
My black loves are true.
My black served the same country
My black is set aside
Like last nights trash
Yet I ask, does your color
Mean right, and my black
What a sad black song.

"Make America White Again"
Will never make any sense
Despite the tweets of "GENIUS" Trump
Or Republicans like Pence
Brown-skinned people filled this land
From one end to the other
And though they had their differences
"Eve" is everyone's mother
Though some are prone to cast a stone
Or ridicule their brother
What makes a nation great again
Is love for one another.

Light dances with the idea of love
the sharks circle at mere plight
of weakness but you cant kick out
a ballerina tiptoeing across rivers
red flowing with contemplation
and the final twin feather bed calling
Tomorrow's successes seduce
the captain's chair empty
he's gone out for air
backed up pickup but the limbs won't move
just need another reason for loving you
The walls are built by more than just an emperor
The chains are laced in verse of discrimination
but I'm building a bridge to you
just don't jump and leave us to clean up behind
and as the **** crows it's going to be alright

No, my friend,
It is not hard for us to love one-another
Hard it is to liberate ourselves from all prejudices
Prevent us from loving one-another!

The more we open our hearts to God the more the barriers that divide us vanish!

anti bullying, discrimination, integrity, pride,
Comes the inevitable moment to decide at last
Whether to stay or go; whether to love or hate
Whether to stand aside or bravely engage issues
To defy the odds and stand proud before the mast
To be late or early, to depend on timorous fate
Heart ripped asunder over questionable virtues.
Yea, lest anyone think fence-sitting is admirable
Or ignoring the necessities of every day’s wishes
The day arrives when we all must compensate
Stop the handwringing and become comfortable
By manning up to what life dishes.

Unlike the spears and the guns
Of the daughters and the sons
But partly they symbolize
Its abstraction ere our eyes
The time has passed by
And the world has also turned
From chaos into concord
Now we say goodbye
To old discrimination
Racism and commotion
There's a new picture
That appropriately depicts
Our genuine love and respect
For our own culture --
Raising our right hand to pledge
And doing our job with badge

As red as love
Since additives have been used in feelings
Globalization has changed a lot of things
Hate is green, love is red and tolerance has bled
A day for love, another for water, and a third for bread
Days are couloured but the world is black.
Stars are bright but, skies are dark.
Torture and sufferings are endless.
Diseases, wars, hunger and stress.
Our kids dream of joy and happiness
Too much talk but, little action is meaningless.

conflict, high school,
“You’re a foot fairy” they say to me.
“You’re a band geek” they mock at me.
“You’re a Jesus freak” they bash on me.
What can I do to gain their love?
Hatred toward everything I do!
When will this pass?
High school needs to die.
“Poetry is for fags” they tell me.
“Man whore” they call me.
“Nerd” they laugh at me.
Why do they do this?
Discrimination flowing through their blood.
What will stop them?
High school needs to die.

Teddy Roosevelt once said -
and carry a big stick”
in referencing this statement
I may not speak softly-
or do anything softly
but I am loved by all
and carry a big stick
a very big hard stick
with very big balls
in my very big head
and all my very
very good friends
all of them

africa, anger, children, community, discrimination, racism, world,
Them that never cease to claim
Everything that’s ours is theirs.
They take our lands,
They spill our blood;
Our children are consumed by lust.
The future, but a toxic mix:
Ancestors lived and died for this?
This legacy, blighting as a spell;
Contaminating, burns a living-hell.
Who is man and who is beast
When one pretends to love but hates?
(Written for Black History Month Oct in UK
The killing continues in plain sight and in various guises)

anger, discrimination, emotions, racism,
these days I think hate is part of the devil's plan
everything I see and the things they say to me
is crucial and un justifying coming from other people's
these days,they don't think think of others like
really I wish the racial profiling will be over with
but it will never end
its sad that people fight over things just get by
stop the hate,everyone start to become one.
bring unity towards other's
love one to another,that's what god would do.
help the people in need.
I look a pound these days and wonder
what would tomorrow be like
but tomorrow is tomorrow,we just have to worry

discrimination, hate, love, soccer,
The Melting Pot is a city
where everyone seems
to live in harmony...
although racism and hate
sometime make ugly headlines!
On Saturday Ballotelli
brought glory to Italy,
we was praised for his decisive goal;
how can we, as a civilized nation, allow haters
to spread prejudism among us and build a thick wall?
It's ignorance that causes
unkindness to others
of different colors and faiths!
My adapted city should be an example of hope
for everyone who wants to make it their home;
I have lived here and seen changes in people
who came together when tragedy stroke:
the wrathful hurricane Sandy was one of them!
If peace is to triumph, there must be love in all!

abuse, care, christian, discrimination, love, racism, sun,
Our lives are passing by and we look down
Someone with holes in their shoes and we frown
People are so different, city and town
Even if you wearing rags or expensive gown
All our hearts pump the same red
Some of us are lucky to have bread
Cold winter nights in a warm bed
Others living like, the walking dead
Our hearts have gone to stone
Every breath we take is on loan
Regardless your palace or time-zone
Is everyone too afraid of the unknown
After all is said and done
And caring less for everyone
In the long run
We are all under the same sun
by Jesz Ika |
You have your roots forgotten
Your perception's now rotten
Noticing oh so sudden
That brother's a great burden
No love for brother or sis
With contempt at them you hiss
And the sharpest point you miss
That racism can't bring bliss
People can be blue, black, white
I can name colours all night
But do remember alright
Only yourself you do fight
Because we all are on par
And you're left behind so far
Still your scars with spite you mar
Frowning at those black as tar
With the same hands, all God made
Watch as you do colours grade
Without love, away you'll fade
For we belong under one shade

confusion, desire, discrimination, hate, judgement, love, sin,
Shall I suppress the hankering of love,
And behold one’s stifle whispering bare,
Or quench thy besmirch of venom thereof,
Or bedight thy fog, doer of despair?
Before perceiving wisdom of thy crime,
Judgement of thyself no question make,
When desires approach years of prime,
Must respect and morals themselves forsake?
Though slavery gone captured we still be,
Yet must we all have thy person to blame?
Praise thy duets of similarity,
Forswear injustice and love all the same,
So even I not man still do yet swain
For love alone must I wish to gain.

I Love the elderly
so full of history
I love my generation
who kept me a mystery
I love the children
who's future, now bright
for I have died for them
to capture the light
for i understand
pain more than ever
once I released it
the anger got better
as it went away from the people
and into my music
without a single
reason to prove it
without a reason
to let Love's light in
I didn't, it found me
and lesser I sin
God and my father
both let me know
it would all be okay
so very long ago
even tho the road
would be full of pricks
even back then I'd tell them
you can all suck my dick.

abuse, addiction, conflict, courage, discrimination, hope,
Every day I wake up
With less and less of a purpose
I keep looking to the sky
For answers to tsunami me
But with no luck and more grief
Not knowing my purpose
My path my capabilities
No guidance and I only have myself to blame
Blame for my faults and lack of hard work
My life is horrible and its only me who knows this feeling
I’m not blaming anyone for the way I feel
Just that I’m tired of feeling this way
All I want is to just be happy
The pursuit of happiness is so far from my grasp
I need help
I need forgiveness
I need love
I pursue happiness

Love is not discriminating
It does not discriminate
Education you have
Your bank account
Your sex orientation
Material things you have or don't have
Love is love
So go and love with all your heart
Because love doesn't discriminate

birthday, earth, feelings, friendship, heart, love,
I am a citizen of that country
Today is her birthday
Surrounded by barbed wire,
Waiting for the command of firearms
I think that everyone has birthday
Somebody knows, somebody doesn't know
Sometime valuable, sometime worthless.
They have countries, they have rules
Mathematical formulas are known
They have birthdays, festivals
Then the red , black, white, how many countries
They have birthdays.
If give up all the barbed wire, discrimination
Mothers would be same with the smell of soil
Mother would be human being
Then birthday of the world, to me, your, everybody
So today I feel
My birthday has become one of the world's birthday.

discrimination, kid, lonely, sad,
icy sidewalks so cold they creak
as children stand with freezing feet
a warm place tonight they must seek
the sun falls down to a night so bleak
broken spirits living on the street
no protection from ones they meet
fires glow and music heard within
the comfort of homes of well fed kin
strangers walk by ignoring their plight
there came an angel, a halo of light
beckoning them to enter her warm lair
they slept in peace upon golden hair
a guardian of love and renewed hope
helping small ones try hard to cope
how loudly these small hearts can beat
if only we help take them off the street

I tried to write about love but I haven’t felt it.
I tried to write about the sea but I’ve never seen it.
Then I tried to write about the air, but I have never breathed it.
I tried to write about magic but I never believed it.
I couldn’t write about god, all I have ever done is sinned.
And when I tried to write about life I found,
I have never really lived.
