Equality wasn’t meant
for those who don’t fit in!
Exclusionism brings comfort
and helps raise the self esteem!
Let’s get rid of all the disabled--
their minds aren’t worth a hoot;
and all of those who don’t look like us--
we should give them all the boot!
But really when all’s said and done
would there be anyone left?
For who’s to say who fits in
and who is worth being left out?
We each have our differences
that some would call our flaws,
but I prefer to think of them
as what gives us each our edge.
My children with their dark skin
don’t look a bit like me,
but they know what it feels like
to feel they don’t fit in.
It has given them compassion
for others who don’t fit in
and they look past the outward skin
to find others’ gifts within.
My daughter with her wheelchair
has legs that do not work,
but oh the joy she brings to life
by complimenting others!
The world would be a dismal place
if we all looked alike,
and what a boring place ‘twould be
if we all thought alike!
Let’s get rid of the mindset
that others aren’t good enough!
Let’s lift and help and look within
and help each other win.
