Inequality?

flowers

Today’s daily prompt #inequality for Blog Action Day.

The voices in your head

the visions that you see

your inability to read

to write

to talk

You can’t pay your bills

you can’t work

you live on the streets

I see your pain

feel your struggles

advocate for you

do my best to help you

breaks my heart

when others

assume

judge

and misunderstand you

judge you

label you

discriminate against you

Some of the most beautiful people

I have had the privilege to know

have been labeled

crazy, insane, retarded, stupid, poor, dirty, no good

these people society casts away

will they ever be equal?
