K.T Williams

who are we

I look around the room
Observing everyone and their actions
Like I do everyday
It's how I learn about people
Each person has their own knacks
Something they love unconditionally
Something that brightens their day
Or someone

What I hate about this world, this society
Is that we put them down and taunt them for it
We strip the happiness from something they find joy in
Watch their eyes as someone bashes them
Watch the light dim in their eyes

Who are we?
To think that we have that right
Or to think we are better than them
To put them down or make them feel less
And all because they get joy out of something we do not
Or because it may be considered "unusual" in our society

Who are we to take that from them
Who are we to diminish their happiness
To make them feel self conscious
And to make them think they are weird
Or somehow undeserving
Who are we to make them feel embarrassed
Or to hide their love for something that gave inexplicable happiness
Who are we

    I can relate to this, really good write! Society is very insecure, it hates what it does not understand.
