"Act as if what you do makes a difference.

Labels seperates us all.

Makes us think were not good enough.

As humans we tend to wanna fit in, but honestly it doesn't make us happy.

It just brings us sadness.

We change ourselves to please others without even thinking twice of how its going to make us feel.

We all look different and were made to stick out.

We all need to put our differences aside and just be united.

Were all here for different reasons, but we break eachother down and make eachother feel useless.

As Mark Twain said "The two most important days in your life are the day you are, and the day you figure out why."

The sad truth is that some kids don't figure out why, because of others telling them there isn't a reason.

In turn kids start to belive it and take themselves off of the world.

The saying "Sticks and stones may break your bone but words will never hurt you" Is completely wrong.


Scars will fade, but a word you say to someone, like "your worthless" they will live their life thinking that.

So literally, and figuratively labels kill people. 

Take the Holocaust for an example we seperated "Jews" and "White", millions of innocent people died.

We seperated "Black" and "White" and slavery happened.

So honestly,

Black being called "ghetto"

White being called "entitled" 

Mexicans being called "drug dealers"

Muslims being called "terrorists"

Is just a way to seperate us all.

The only label that should ever be used is "HUMAN".

I hope people realise that judging others by Sterotypes is the reason or country is falling apart.
