The Sad Story of Prejudice

from Nhojj Poetry Vol. 2 by Nhojj



Prejudice is a sad story... and perspective, though not an answer, provides a certain advantage...


Hurt people hurt people...

It is an ignorant man who tries to ignore the equality of women and men

It is an imprisoned mind that tries to imprison another’s mind

It is a battered soul who tries to batter another soul

It is an impaired person who tries to impair another person 

Disability Discrimination  
It is a crippled view that cannot offer help to another in need 

It is a deprived heart that tries to deprive another of their rights
It is a tortured human being who tries to bully another human being  

It is an impoverished, depressed attitude that tries to impoverish and depress
I could go on but I think you get the idea...

My Personal Response
Notice the phrase “tries to”.  When someone tries to hand me trash, I have the option of refusing it, and if I feel I can’t refuse, I can dump it in the nearest trash can.  There is no need to drowned in another’s garbage, and besides people can and do change so...  

As I fight the good fight, I can grip the hand of faith and hope that imprisoned brothers and sisters are on a journey to freedom, ignorant children on their way to enlightenment, and ailing brethren on a path of healing.  Indeed the whole needs the left and right, bottom and top, middle and fringes, and compassion is the glue.

But this is a story for your children to tell their children and grandchildren... yes?

Yes and maybe we can begin to write the first lines...
