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.

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;

Before we grow old and die.
