Nobody's going to read this, but I had to get it out anyways. I'm sick and tired of one-dimensional media.
There's a g-glitch in the system
Only one c-colour shooting out of the prism
They say th-they accept all
No matter where our b-background falls
Then why is it, that wh-wherever I look
On TV, a m-magazine, websites, a book
I see a s-sea with no diversity?
A false d-depiction of reality?
Not everyone's atheist or Christian and white
With blonde hair, blue eyes and the like.
Not all girls are curvy and thin
Styled to perfection outside and within.
Boys aren't all muscled and confrontational
And teenagers aren't all dumb and hormonal.
Please, don't continue to create these lies
Colonialism is supposed to have died
Stop being so afraid, to be the change
To prove to the world we're not all the same.
I'm with you, every step of the way,
It's not quite easy to discard in a day
Ideas and images that have been drilled
Into our heads, but even still
You will triumph, and lead us to a place
Where being different isn't a disgrace,
And media will reflect what is truly the case.
Now the time has come for me to let go-
To let your eyes float and flow
Away from this piece, and back to your day
I hope you have learned something during your stay,
But if not (I hope not) do as you may,
And try to remember what I had to say.
