We The People Of The Earth

I hope we
the people of the great blue and green planet
3rd closest to the sun
treat each other with respect
I hope no one is killed because of the color of their skin

I hope no one is killed because of what they believe in
or who they love
or what gender they feel

I hope no one is killed because of the labels they did not choose
but  that they are drowned in
drowned in by others 
“retarded”
“negro”
“fag”

I hope no one is killed because they speak up
Because they tell the villains of this world to stop
stop leaving pain and tears everywhere their
cruel
feet
step

I hope no one is killed because they are not able to walk
or talk
or see
or hear
or move

I hope no one is killed because they immigrated here from another country
Some people don’t seem to understand that
they
are
human
too

I hope no one is killed because of what shirt size they wear
or how they present themselves

I hope no one is killed because they don’t have a house and are living on the streets
begging for money from those who walk past
‘cause that is the only way to keep themselves from going to the dark
dark  place of unknown that most of us fear
death

I hope no one EVER feels the need to end their own life
I hope no one is killed because they don’t fit inside YOUR standards

I hope no one is killed for being brave enough to be themselves
to come out to the world and say
“This
Is
Who
I
Am”

I hope no one is killed at all
