There's so much hate in today's world

Looking at all the back biting & deceit makes me hurl.

Being sexist, two-faced, & racist doesn't put you above

What happened to world peace, unity, & love?

It doesn't matter what gender or color you are

Violence breaks out when you spend all your time at the bar.

Jealousy & rage is the cause of this

& sadly, so many men are abusing their miss.

No one is around to give a lending hand

Don't you think it's time to take a stand?

I'm sick & tired of all the hate

But my opinions are locked in a crate.

This is the land of the "free"

Is it really possible to freely have a cup of tea?

Don't people come here for a better life?

They don't want to be stabbed with a knife.

Racial profiling shouldn't be done

For those people, it's never fun.

Everyone follows these crazy stereotypes

What you don't know is it hurts like kryptonite.

People are losing their second chance

Life isn't easy enough to just sing & dance.

So many people are in a state of devastation

Doesn't that put you in deep contemplation?

Why is everyone so quick to judge?

But when it's time to help, there's not a budge.

How long will all this nonsense last?

Can't we leave history in the past?

I want my children to live in a world of opportunity & prosperity

Not surrounded by chaos & insanity.

Why do people only live to hurt?

Perverted men that try to get under a woman's skirt.

Well, here's to them for scarring us

& lowering our amount of trust.

Too many times do we walk past guys

& hear them tell you, "My, oh, my".

It's so degrading

& leaves them complaining.

What has the world come to?

There's a lot of fixing to do.

Maybe one day we can start off fresh

Lower the great amount of stress.

Hopefully our ideas & opinions compress

& there won't be the need for an outrageous protest.
