Aren't we more than this?

We all categorize, synthesize,
adapt, organize, one above,
one below, one better,
one worse. Aren't we
better than that?

Tall, thin,
Short, fat,
Small, large,
black, white.

We strive for equality,
but we still file,
categorize.
How are we better?
How are we worse?

Tall, thin,
Short, fat,
Small, large,
black, white.

We draw borders,
invisible lines,
We separate, 
we synthesize. 

Tall, thin,
Short, fat,
Small, large,
black, white.

Are we all just that?
We draw the world in black,
and white. We see each other
in black and white.

When will we learn,
when will we realize,
That all of these are lies.

Did God paint the world
in black and white?
Is that all he wanted,
to be bleak and plain?

Tall, thin,
Short, fat,
Small, large,
black, white.

We live our lives, 
and see these things,
But is that all there is 
to us?

Tall, thin,
Short, fat,
Small, large,
black, white.
Ask yourself "Is that all I am?'

    Wow, I love this piece! It's such an amazing way to show how we fight for equality and yet our actions seem to show the opposite! My favourite line is definitely, "We strive for/equality/but we still file/categorize." RE: I only give compliments where they're deserved, it really was an amazing piece! I truly can't believe you're only in 7th grade writing things like that! Omg yes! I knew I'd heard it before! And aww, thank you! :)
