Inclusion.

Poetry.

Stop me at the border,

Fleeing from a nation at war.

I cannot be a refugee,

I have blue eyes and blonde hair,

I am civilized.

…….

Stop me at the border,

I have black hair and brown skin,

Sorry, you are not included!

You are the model refugee.

You are not a Christian!

……..

Stop me at the border,

Asian or African in another nation.

Oh skin tone even darker?

Perfect, you are my target.

You can be any religion!

….

Stop me at the border,

Yeah white, brown, black,

It is just red blood inside,

Inclusion, a norm for humanity?

Only when shown in thought, speech and activity!

  • Have a wonderful day ❤️

A place for writers who like writing stories about literally anything that shows imagination. Stories that can support you in ‘getting away from it all, ‘from the stressors of real-life. LGBTQ+ articles are welcome too here, as our aim is to promote mindfulness and stigma.
