I Wish the World could hear my Plea

24 Jan



By: Tony L. Jefferson, Jr.


I wish the world could hear my plea

To stop the violence that is killing me

Me as in soldiers persecuted by senseless wars

Belittling our significance in today’s troubled world

A world free of racism

What a wonderful thought

Smashed by pure ignorance

Just look at the results

A nation of adults

We are supposed to be rational

But instead bicker and whine over simple skin color

Hear my plea my fellow citizens

That if we continue this innate stupidity

From within we will be destroyed

Not Black, White, Hispanic, Asian, Indian, Communist, Liberal, Republican or Democrat

We are one of many

A blending of colors

A melting pot of cultures

Great nations split and skewed

By senseless ignorance and increased arrogance

I wish the world could hear my plea

To stop this violence that is killing me

    Thank you. I agree we need more peace, less war … no war.

    I think what’s needed on everyone’s part is a sense of fallibility. We’re all fairly frail, yet too often fail to see it.

    I hear your plea and I too wish the world could hear you as well. We should all want nothing more than peace on earth. But we still have ignorant adults that choose to fight and bicker over skin color because that is what they were taught as children. I wish they one day this people will just open their eyes and break the cycle. For as long as their is prejudice parents out there, there will be prejudice children everywhere.
