Hear my Thoughts

by Swesuny – a published poet from Southeast Asia. Find her on IG.

This piece was inspired by the current social and political climate in the writer’s hometown and abroad, in the United States. 


It saddened me to see others look for faults
in the other people,
It saddened me to see others misjudge
the other people,
It saddened me to see others consider themselves higher –
above the other people.
It saddened me to see others use their ability
to degrade other people,
It saddened me to know others manipulate
the information to sabotage other people,
It saddened me to look at those who are in authority
using their powers to disgrace other people.
It saddened me seeing others so full of themselves
and forgetting their manners,
It saddened me – things I have noticed
and seen around my surroundings,
It saddened me that they can’t be more ethical
and virtuous human beings.
A human being that has a good heart
ready to accept individual uniqueness,
A human being that has an eye open
to see every possibility,
A human being that has ears
ready to listen to every person’s concerns,
And a human being that has a hand to help
without expecting anything in return.
I hope we can spread love and acceptance, not hate.
