Poetry Corner: I Tried Not To Say

I should know better by now
Pretend, play the game,
Say nothing, let the hatred fly
Watch on as bigotry is truth
I know, it doesn’t matter
I do, I know.

I tried not to say, I did,
I promise,
Walk away, I’m not involved
Each time, this will be different
It ends the same

Tolerance and understanding
The new judgemental hatred
I become things I’m not
I smile, I walk away
Carry on with life,
Where I was anyway
