©PEOPLE IN PRISON ARE HUMAN BEINGS TOO!!!
Where in any of all those “NO’s” are we ever called what we truly are: HUMAN BEINGS?
Once a person is labeled as a Felon, or called a: thief, murderer, rapist, drug dealer…ect
He/she looses any individuality & is thrown in a class/category that describes him/her with the most horrendous images:
Images that provoke raw emotions such as:
Fear, apprehension, distaste, distrust, discomfort, hate, abhorrence, & prejudice…
Now the general public has a reason to look down upon another person, elevate themselves & feel: “Holier than Thou.”
Those labels are a PRISON!!!
The prison has huge brick walls with huge letters spray painted on then that broadcasts us as: FELONS, CRIMINALS, THUGS, GANGSTERS…
The walls the labels are attached to prevent people from getting in & prevent the real person behind the labels from getting out & being seen…
Instead of seeing me, you see the label in front of me…
But in reality my friend, the label confines you in more than it confines me in
If your prejudice prevents you from talking to me, from seeing me for who I am, from going to this place, or going to that place because of the “Type” of people who are there….
Than you are in a bigger prison than I am…it’s called PREJUDICE!!!
When is society gonna be released from the prisons of labels & prejudice?
Give their brains & hearts FREEDOM!!!
SEE ME FOR WHOM I AM!!!
BECAUSE PEOPLE IN PRISON ARE REAL HUMAN BEINGS TOO!!!
I REFUSE TO LET YOU DEFINE WHO I AM:
Call me what you want!!!
Your labels, names, categories & descriptions
DO NOT DEFINE ME!!!
I refuse to let your perception classify & identify me
I speak for myself, I have my own brain, I have my own will, I have a tongue, I have 2 lips, I have 2 jaws, I have a larynx, I have a voice
AND I WILL SPEAK UP & I WILL BE HEARD!!!
BECAUSE PEOPLE IN PRISON ARE REAL HUMAN BEINGS TOO!
Thanks for your time!!!
