 240. Words are Innocent
The label
Isn't to blame
For how
It is used.

The categories
Are there
To help us
Have some point
To begin
A conversation
With.

Stereotypes
Are the same,
They aren't
Necessarily accurate
But there
Is some truth
In them.

In the land of “I”
AmerIcans often hate
To be defined
Being thrown
Into the Melting Pot
Because everyone
Is unique
Which means
You're AmerIcan.

See what I mean?
Or to do hear
What I imply?

I'm a Bisexual
Unless you are
Educated enough
To know what Pansexual
Is,
Polymourus,
Unless you have no idea,
Into open relationships,
Pagan,
Which means twelve to
Thirteen different things
Depending on who
You are talking to
Nature based religion
Or anything outside
Of the big three,
But really
In the end
If you know
The words
And their definitions
Or not
The words
Are innocent…

Those who use
Them may
Or may
Not be.
