Social Justice Poetry

Chosen | A Social Justice Poem by Guy Farmer

They see themselves
As the chosen ones,
Which unfortunately
Always seems to mean
That someone else is
Not quite as special.

Thus begins a campaign
To assert their supremacy,
To put others down
In order to buoy their
Own status or sense of
Self-importance.

A never-ending cycle of
Feeling superior and
Fighting rabidly to
Maintain their position
Regardless of how it
Tears up the world.
