Rise

If you're looked down upon
because of your gender
rise above everything else.

If you are discriminated
because of your sexuality
rise above everything else.

If you are segregated
because of the color of your skin
rise above everything else.

If you are sidelined
because you are disabled
rise above everything else.

If you have no rights to say
because you are young and vulnerable
rise above everything else.

If you are neglected
because you are a senior citizen
rise above everything else.

If you are troubled
for not being one of them
rise above everything else.

Even when they are many, and we are a few
we can still rise above everyone else
because we know better.
