Color Blind - Poem by Kenneth R. Jenkins

I am a man-
No matter the color
No matter the race
No matter the time or place
I AM A MAN!

I am CoLoRlEsS-
No matter if I am WHITE
No matter if I am BLACK
But this is a fact
I AM A MAN!

I am human-
No matter who we are
No matter the boundries
I am color blind you see
And I AM A MAN!

No matter how you are
Rather black or white
Dark or light
A brown or gray,
I AM A MAN!


Poet's Notes about The Poem

After seeing pictures of the Sanitation workers in 1968 with their signs reading 'I AM A MAN' I was inspired me to write this poem.
