beneath all the descriptors is a person

beautiful and kind
smart, funny and divine
words are just labels

beneath all the descriptors is a person
a person is a person
black or white or gay or straight

a person is a person
people are so eager to accept her for being
nice and bubbly

sporty, intelligent and witty
but when it comes to identity
the prejudices darken visions and fear clouds love

fear breathes life to hate
no one hates the one who won all the awards and did as told
it is the same person

a person is a person

People need to stop condemning others because of their sexual orientation   or gender. Who are you to judge someone else thoughts, feelings and identity? This poem was messy, but i needed to get my thoughts out. Hate comes from fear and hate does not make you stronger. It makes you weaker, it makes you the coward. Beneath the labels, the person is still the same person. All seven billion of us breathe the same oxygen, you are not that special. You do not have the right to judge others and think of them as any less than you. The people who are brave enough to accept who they are and share it with the world are so much happier and at peace with themselves and the world, than the sad, pathetic, scared haters will ever dream of being.

Never love two persons,
unless you always have a choice.
Never love two persons,
because you'll listen only to one voice.

#love   #heartbreak   #two   #persons  
Be your own person.

Be your own person.

I was thinking about things I've been taught over the years. How I've grown to developing my own opinions and my own morals and ethics...
How I differ in many ways from my parents. A voice in my head and my heart told me just now as I was looking at the beach at night. It said, "be your own person."
Peace, love and everything happy!

My smile could be public
But tears are personal
Smile can be faked
Tears really roll for special one

because that person
gave you everything she had
but you destroyed her

In reply to 'One Person (haiku)'
My person.

Looking at you, I realise
perfection
does exist in this world

My person.

The split personality which exists within us,
constantly battling for the spotlight of your mind,
feeding off your acquiescence to their imposing forces.
Beating like a drum at the sides of your skull.

he disturbing thing is, this is all one person

She said one, I said two
She said empty, I said full
She said hate, I said love
She said left, I said right
The disturbing thing is, this is all one person
with two different personalities.

People in this world have two personalities. I'm encouraging them to use their right personality, their true personality and not the fake personality. :) BTW this poem is about my struggle with two personalities I had and changed to be a better person.
