It Only Takes One To Visit

It only takes one to visit,
For that one to realize...
The scope of the mental illness there.
Just one visit,
And those aware of bigotry and racism...
Regardless of the beauty welcomed,
With the changing of each season...
What is window dressed,
Covers with success the evilness.
It only takes one to visit,
To witness the depth of ineptness.
Lawrence S. Pertillar

Releaving Her Pain

Laying on the bed, she cries for what awaits next day.
In school, ready to face the daily racism.
In lunch she sits alone, as kids point and laugh.
The bus ride home, a nightmare never to awake from.
She goes upstairs, to cry in the bath scrubbing hard in hopes to wash away the cruelty of the day.
She turns and looks, to see her only friend balancing gracefully near the edge.
She closes her eyes, as her friend kisses her skin.
As she sinks into the tub, her emerald roads cry soft ruby tears.
Maybe now, her pain will go away?
Maybe now, people will realize what they've done?
Maybe..maybe...to late now.

Ignoring the truth
Going to a quick judgment at sight
Naming hurtful labels
Opposing facts and knowledge
Reeling in bitterness and anger
Applying stereotypes based on looks
Never really knowing the person
Continuing cycle of racism and homophobia
Extinct ignorance never will be

A Coffin

All set is a coffin,
A new home for a cadaver,
To lay within,
The gigantic earth, the home bigger.

A coffin is like a vehicle,
That leads the body without soul,
To that space eternal,
Perish both attaining the goal.

A coffin embraces all, it knows no racism ever,
A safe haven for each soul all over.
Md. Ziaul Haque
