Recipe Of Hate
half a cup
half a cup
Then roll it
till it's seasoned
Into a melting pot
Combine it in with ethnocentric bunkum The kind
the grand prize for paternalistic discrimination
add two tablespoons
blindly partisan beliefs
Fuse it in
with an ounce
of social ostracism
Insert a variety
of preconceived stereotypes
With a full glass
Of malicious discrimination
Then Let it simmer to
Taunt and deride
Whose ever strange in your eyes
This is a
Recipe of Hate

Where Does Freewill Lead, If We Chose Not To Follow Love
Love is not a law
We follow because we are told
Love is a vow made of freewill
In the light of truth
Without love life is chaos
Law cannot prevent chaos
only conscious love is capable
life in an environment of chaos
Love is a lesson learned form experience
Not a law that can be enforced
What is freewill without love?
But the cause of suffering
What is love without equality?
Other than discrimination
What does discrimination lead to?
Other than self-loathing
What is life without freewill?
Freewill being law
Does not excuse us
From the consequences of our actions
Compassion is creation's compass
Navigating the seas of karma
Leading us back to pure
Love is the light of life's journey
The only means in leading ourselves towards salvation.

We'Ve Come Not Far Enough...
Why are they judged?
A scale. Kinsey
No more, No less
Is there so much difference?
Something to fix?
1 is the norm,
that's what is said,
But if it were to change
Time to Bend.
would there be a choice?
Discrimination reversed, Old Normality.
A submissive voice.
The feelings, repressed and hidden,
yet never ruled to be forbidden.
Why then, do some enjoy,
Putting down those whose lives they destroy?
We've come so far
Yet Laws are new
Rights are few...
Insults and critics should get their due.
Time for acceptance.
Yet will it be enough?
For history is known to repeat itself
Unless we pay attention.
Strengthen our retention.
Feel not a sense of Dιjΰ vu.

Knowledge is power, know your history,
Study his story or her story.
Whichever you favour, to choose your reaction,
For illumination, learn about the history of your nation.
For history repeats itself,
So make a change, to help yourself.
Learn what made you, the person you are.
Know your roots, before planting your seed,
Don't let your mistakes, line your history.
Affirmative action will set you free, to ignore the bigotry.
The Afro-American struggle, has similarities with your own;
Surely you too, have been persecuted by someone.
Sure maybe on a different scale,
But still persecuted, like the feminist females.
Still, treated differently
Because of their thoughts of you.
Their opinion of how you look,
Or what they see you do.
Surely they've closed the door to you too?
And sent you away,
Before hearing your words?
Simply because of the way,
You are perceived to be.
It may have even lead you,
To question the person they see.
They judge you with their power,
Without even knowing you;
But even Einstein looked stupid,
With his mad scientist hairdo.
So follow what you believe, you can really do,
Don't quit because they say,
You can't do the things you wish to.
Prove them wrong, prove yourself right.
Never let them overcome your struggle,
Because nothing good comes easy,
There is always a price.
So is it worth the fight?
The hardest fight you'll have
Is with the demons inside you,
But when you've conquered your inner demons,
Nothing in this world will be able to stop you.
