Look At Me With Eyes That Are Free
Look at me with eyes that are free from hate.
I have done nothing to you
Yet I receive your scorn.
I am the target of your pain;
Why do you hate?
Who taught you that everyone must be the same?
In your actions you reject the teachings that you hold in esteem;
You use the words to create a blanket of hypocrisy.
Your life must be filled with sadness.
Look at me with eyes that are free from jealousy.
I made choices that you did not make
Though you had the same opportunities.
What is it about me that you envy?
Perhaps I can try to help you understand
That you can't fit people into your own categories.
You do not have that power.
And you do not have power over me.
Instead look at me with eyes that are free
To see beauty and not judge
To see I am human
And we are one.
