the cup shakes

held by the desperate

humanity closes off

blind eyes show no warmth

acknowledgement is hidden

as they walk with there heads held high

souls on gutters feel obsolete

down trodden by our kind

time and time again

acceptance is futile

leprosy in society

never to be understood

always below standards

when will we ever learn

this is not what was intended

they don't want your money

are sickened by your pity

all they crave is respect

the one thing we strip them of

they are better then us

in more ways then known

they hold the dear close

and not the priced

next time you veer away

look into their eyes

and tell me they aren't worth

your love and respect
