Daily Prompts- Is this okay?

With disbelief, we renounce the acts

Committed by those we refuse to acknowledge

As a part of our humanity, our brethren

They commit such abhorrent crimes that

Break our hearts and destroy our faith in them

Of double standards that we accept as the norms

Isn’t it the time we draw new outlines of acceptable

Burst this limp bubble of so-called human failings

And install laws of just and equitable treatment

For one and all, for white and colored, for me and you
