Equality

I wrote this poem because I just felt a need to write about this topic. We all talk about racism, sexism, discrimination and all the other things related to them in some ways. While I was thinking about all these things I found a common answer or fact connecting to all of them, it was ’equality.’ We all are somehow trying to fit into this world. We all are fighting to be treated equally, whether you are a girl, boy, gay, fat , slim, black, brown, white or just you. We are treated unequally in some ways in at least one point of our life and that’s unfair. We were born equal. Nobody’s born with diamonds studded in their bodies!

This boy has a dark shade of skin

And a heart as bright as the stars,

But they’ll call him different;

Even when they don’t know him at all.

……………………………………………………

This girl weighs more than normal.

She had a heart breaking past,

But they’ll judge her by their perspectives

Narrow, shallow and small.

…………………………………………………..

This guy loves boys more than girls,

He could love who ever he wants,

But they’ll say he shouldn’t

Who are they to tell? They’re humans, not gods!

……………………………………………………

She wears short clothes and makeup.

It’s her choice to make, neither theirs or ours.

They’ll call her by dirty names.

She simply doesn’t care or responds.

…………………………………………………….

This group of people is incredibly talented

And somehow unable to walk.

So, they’ll call them disabled.

They’ll just say whatever they want!

………………………………………………….

They are inhabitants of golden world.

Judgmental population living between gray walls.

They won’t accept traits other than theirs.

This kingdom of fakes wants to see ‘Us’ fall.

…………………………………………………….

They’ll talk about equality

‘We are one ’they’ll shout.

People with double faces,

Discriminative, dominating, egoistic and proud.

…………………………………………………….

They are the reason why

Discrimination still lives and was born.

The motive of their world is

‘The world of love shall be torn.’

………………………………………………………

We are fat,slim,black, white

Girl,boy,gay or whatever we are.

Our differences are our uniqueness.

Love is our greatest power.

……………………………………………………

Equality is not mere a topic

To discuss, debate or fight for.

It’s a right we were born with.

We shall say it out aloud.

…………………………………………………..

Nobody’s same, nobody’s perfect.

It’s not our world, it’s their’s which discriminates.

Nobody’s superior, nobody’s flawless.

We are equal and will always remain.

……………………………………………………

So let’s come together not to fight for equality,

But to seek our very own right.

Let’s stand against their golden world.

Our love & our differences together  forms our might.
