It has been said, beauty is skin deep,

Yet many are scared and still weep.

We instill insults to put others down,

To stand above them like we wear the crown.


Are we not the same, Do they deserve the pain?

Asking themselves, “Are we just a stain?”

We are all alike, no need for fights,

Kindness and care in all our rights!


We are all people, all of one race,

No difference in color, each beautiful face.

Male and female all valued the same,

Everyone matters, we’re all in the game!


So many things to change, are in need,

Where do we start, is the question indeed.

What would I change to help this earth?

Equality to show everyone’s worth!
