Oh, Please Give Me A Break!

Oh, please give me a break!



Oh, please give me a break!

I don’t speak the language

That divide and categorize

I don’t take pride in belonging to the groups

It’s a sheer hypocrisy to which I won’t stoop

I speak the language - the language of smile

The universal language, yes, that is mine


Oh, please give me a break!

I don’t belong to a certain country, region or a state

The whole world is my home

Where I’d like to freely roam

Discrimination is figment of feeble mind

Which make human, inhuman and blind

And which hinder the progress of entire mankind.

Brilliant choice of words; great rhythm and empowering message. This one it's truly for the underdogs; very inspiring and motivational. This was truly fantastic; "the whole world is my home" was my favorite line :) thanks for the invite! I hope you can read some of my stuff too! :)
