God Sees Us All The Same

I live in a world surrounded with people treating each other differently for the color of their skin or what gender they are attached to or what they believe in. I believe we are all equal, that we are all human. Nobody should be deemed different just because they aren't part of the norm.

There's a girl crying alone in her room,
Wishing she could disappear from this cursed earth.
Dragging a razor blade across her scarred wrist,
She fails to see how much she is worth.

There's a boy that dreams each night,
Hoping to muster the courage to talk to his crush.
He's too afraid of all the judging and name calling to approach him,
But those people lack to remember he's human just as much.

There's a man driving home from work,
Praying his wife hasn't discovered his lies.
Covering up that one night he made a mistake,
He has forgotten we all live under the same sky.

There's a woman sitting in a bar,
Thinking of all the times she's been there before.
She's wondering if she'll ever be truly loved by someone,
But what she doesn't realize is she's worth so much more.

There's a God watching over all of them,
Watching them with unconditional love and pride.
Waiting with open arms to welcome them home,
He's hoping they find they are loved for what's inside.

I am a 11-year-old girl on my grandma's computer. I was touched by this poem because it is at my school we have a few of problems that my principal refuses to solve such as teasing, bullying, etc. It has helped me to see better in people. I am doing a project at my school where we read aloud a poem and tell what it means. I am usually the shy one in my class, and this poem pushed me to be all I can be, so I am going to go up there and tell them what my poem is about with CONFIDENCE. Thank you, Ella J. Phillips! I just want you to know you are amazing however you are!
