Discrimination
by Adelaide Rhead

Why do you think you're better
If your culture is not the same?
Yes, maybe you seem different
But deep inside all are the same.

Why do they think they're better?
If one is black and one is white,
If one is man and one is woman.
They are the same, that is their right.

The Earth Is Beautiful?
by Samantha Lee

Tender beautiful world, with breezes caressing and
whole, Alive with music, uplifting my soul.
I've tasted the sweetness of my every encounter
through, But something tells me, is this really true?
Days of terror, strike with fear, confused of which
direction, away to steer.
Blitzkrieg!.. What a big surprise. Clergy backing of
both sides in war, Bias, ersatz teachings, alienate
us all.
Files of x-filed abolished cases, shut dam right

Ch 01 Manner Of Kings Story 39
by Saadi Shirazi

Harun-ur-Rashid said when the country of Egypt was surrendered to him: "In contrast to the rebel who had in his arrogance of being sovereign of Egypt pretended to be God, I shall bestow this country upon the meanest of my slaves." He had a stupid negro, Khosaib by name, whom he made governor of Egypt but his intellect and discrimination were so limited that when the tribe of Egyptian agriculturists complained and stated that they had sown cotton along the banks of the Nile and that an untimely rain had destroyed it he replied: "You ought to have sown wool." A pious man heard this, and said:

"If livelihood were increased by knowledge
None would be more needy than the ignorant.
Nevertheless the ignorant receive a livelihood
At which the learned stand aghast.
The luck of wealth consists not in skill
But only in the aid of heaven.
It happens in the world that many
Silly men are honoured and sages despised.

Black And White
by Margaret Anne McCants

Life is not always black and white
Especially for those who cannot perceive color
God can be so cruel and unfair
To never see another glorious sunrise, a colorful rainbow,
A baby's gently face or the love in the eyes of a man,
Would cause anyone heartache beyond compare...
There is perhaps no justification,
Only that it is fate and destiny.
Strangers stare as they walk by
With a cane that signifies a symbol of weakness.

The Angel Tree
by Sandra Hawkins

A leaf broke away, spinning to the earth
droplets of dew formed from unheralded sadness

As the leaf spiraled downward, a beautiful angel
plucked it from the air, admiring perfection.
Divine breath pushed it high above her
wafting upward, the leaf glistened. Rays of light
gently tugged until forward motion was felt.
Brightness arrived

When The Law Shut Down Your Dreams
by Christen Kuikoua

In a world where I am Christen Kuikoua,
Yet each day, I question if it's truly me.
I can act, sing, and model with passion,
But my dreams face a relentless decree.

Every aspiration met with a crushing sound,
As though someone's there to pull me down.
It's a daily struggle, a living hell,
Where critiques and judgments persist and swell.

Under The Bridge In Del Rio, Texas, USA
by Hébert Logerie

Under The Bridge In Del Rio, Texas USA

Under the bridge in Del Rio are stopped, stuck, stationed
Thousands of migrant Haitians, not Ukrainians
Frankly, if they were the latter, they wouldn’t be sanctioned
Detained, abased, mistreated and deported like Haitians
Like herds of cattle to detention centers in Mexico or in their Homeland
It’s asinine, sad, odious, and repugnant to see the barbaric treatments
And humiliations inflicted on them by the Border Patrol agents
Who themselves are descendants of poor and once desperate migrants

Sotto Il Ponte A Del Rio, Texas, Stati Uniti D'america
by Hébert Logerie

Sotto Il Ponte A Del Rio, Texas, Stati Uniti D'america

Sotto il ponte a Del Rio sono fermi, bloccati, appostati, accerchiati
Ammucchiati migliaia di migranti Haitiani, non Ucraini
Francamente, se fossero questi ultimi, non sarebbero sanzionati
Detenuti, umiliati, maltrattati e deportati come haitiani
Come mandrie di bestiame nei centri di detenzione in Messico o nella loro Patria
È stupido, triste, odioso e ripugnante per vedere i trattamenti barbari
E le umiliazioni inflitte loro dagli agenti della Border Patrol
Che sono essi stessi discendenti di migranti poveri e un tempo disperati I migranti, come tutti noi, cercano semplicemente una vita migliore in una terra diversa

Bajo El Puente Del Río, Texas, USA
by Hébert Logerie

Bajo el puente Del Río están parados, atascados, estacionados

Miles de inmigrantes Haitianos, no Ucranianos

Francamente, si fueran estos últimos, no serían sancionados

Detenidos, humillados, maltratados y deportados como Haitianos

Como rebaños de ganado a centros de detención en México o en su Patria
