Often times I wonder,
Why we act, react, act, and repeat.
I grew up in a house that says no to discrimination,
I grew up in a society that says yes.
I grew up in a church that says to love everyone,
I grew up learning that not all churches do.
I grew up trying to find myself,
I grew up learning that if I want to fit in, I need to be someone else.
These are the problems define us.
No need for 'not all people do this and that'
If we are a part of the society that encourages this,
We are a part of the problem when we do not discourage.
When I first learned, that because of my gender I will not earn the same amount of money for the same job,
I said "Something's wrong with that"
When I asked about it, I was told "That's just the way things are"
The mindset of keeping things the way they are needs to be destroyed.
I am done listening to a society that does not even offer me any level of respect.
I say no.
I will not discriminate
I will love everyone.
Above all, I will be myself.
It's your turn to say no.
