Universal Love

Face to face against prejudice I stand,
Dehumanized and victimized, alone;
Hiding from the grave, as Death toils the land:
Bewild’ring bloodlust … destiny unknown.

Hollow-eyed I wait, muted by the pain;
This policy of harsh ethnic cleansing
Must end! Cleanse the horrors etched in my brain!
Numb the hurt and the fear that I’m sensing.

Don’t cultivate ignorance, or notions
Preconceived; Don’t violate Innocence,
Or quench thirst with genocidal potions!
Don’t laugh at cruelty or children that wince.

Make me feel special, rather than despised;
Universal love in my heart incised.
