Please Don't Hate Me

Please don't hate me

for something I didn't do

Please don't hate me

for the people I'm related to

Please don't hate me

for the color of my skin

I don't hate you

Do you not hate me too?

Please don't hate me

for being so pale

Don't call me a ghost

or a vampire too

I don't like it

be careful, or I'll bite you!

Please don't hate me

for being white

Please don't hate me

because of the way I look

Please don't hate me

because of what my race has done in the past.

Please don't tell me I'm 

racist

mean 

rude

snobbish

evil

Especially white trash.

I don't hate you

So please don't hate me, will you?

But most of all, 

even if you can manage

just this one thing

treat me equally

as I do the same to you.

This poem is about: 
Me
Our world
