Woe to you, humans!
For you have so many different faces,
that urge the desire
to have so many different things at once.
And woe to you, morons!
For you judge people
based on their hair color,
and whether they are fair-skinned or dark-skinned.
For you value people
based on what car they drive to work,
or whether they own the latest gadget,
as well as their profession.
a Blackberry or an iPhone could define its owner?
Shakespeare once asked,
“What’s in a name?”
Now here’s my questions:
How can you tell that John is richer than Wagiman?
why did you say Michael is a much better name than Eko?
nothing defines a man better
than his mind
and his attitude

I told you already that I’m terrible with poems.
Sorry, it’s a terrible poem. I know it is.
And I guess I’m taking things too far here.
To write “man” is quite stereotyping and overgeneralizing.
Then perhaps I ought to address that to myself instead.
Woe is me!
For I told people
that we shouldn’t judge people
based on their appearance
but on what’s inside.
Yet I did the exact same thing myself.
