Perspective

Original Poetry

It’s all a matter of perspective.
We cry about failed relationships
And
Write poetry
About bloodstains on our
Bathroom floors.
But what the blood splatter
From that young child in Gaza,
Who was killed for
Just being them?
Let’s not forget the innocent
Men and women
Slaughtered by police
For the colour of their skin.
Or the journalists
Who were decapitated
For simply doing their job
In informing and protecting
The world.
Have some perspective.
There are bigger problems on this planet.
Let’s forgive those who’ve wronged us, and fight for peace and equality,
And end to those who continue to wrong us
With persistent racism
Violence
Torture
Murder
Terrorism.
Let’s make this world
A safer place
For our grand children.
