Stereotyping Me by Bevan Boggenpoel

Creative Talents Unleashed

Why are you –

stereotyping me?

throwing all of us –

into the same sea

You’re not part –

of my race

so you have no right –

to put me in some place

You reckon –

I belong

this is belittling –

and so wrong

Just because I’m part –

of a certain culture

how does that make me-

an animal or a vulture?

I could be a carnation –

the others weed

but you refer to us –

as the same seed
