I Am Colour Blind


I can see clearly
My eyes are very sharp
My inner sight is sound
Yet I am blind
I cannot decipher the difference
Between blacks, whites, reds and suchlike
I cannot see the tribes
I am blind to what divides
I am blind to intolerance
I cannot see contentions
But I am not blind to love,
Unity, peace, joy, goodness
And suchlike that makes us one
I can see all under one umbrella
That's what I see
So, let everyone be colour blind
But let all see what binds us together

Spring, the sweet spring, is the year's pleasant king,
Then blooms each thing, then maids dance in a ring,
Cold doth not sting, the pretty birds do sing:
