I’m looked upon as filth..
A curse,
A nuisance,
In isolation…
I feel discrimination.
What did I do?

Life has decided what I would be.
I did not choose life, life chose me.
Is it not unfair,
That I be judged
And made to feel no worth?

I’m marked,
My clothes of white,
My shaven head,
Explain the shame,
Yet, am I to blame?

My culture weighs upon my shoulders,
Discrimination like big boulders.
Diversity, inequality, indifference,
No one should be subdued to these.

No race, no status, no illness, or religion,
No gender, no culture
should evoke feelings of discrimination.
