Don't Judge the Color of My Skin


Don't Judge the Color of My Skin

Don't judge me for the color of my skin.
But from the substance I have within.
My intellect I possess.
And the strength I compose.
The root of my spiritual fruit.
And the knowledge I obtain
The wisdom I gain.
And the words I use.
My balance views.
The confusion I defuse.
My peaceful depth of soul.
That I keep under control.
The integrity I display.
And my humble ways.
My image I project.
With self respect.
The complete work I do.
And how I see things through.
For there are several elements still I hold.
Even the hidden qualities I have yet unfold.
So don't just judge the color of my skin from what
you see.
You do not know me.

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
