Treasure Island

If we were born blind


If we were born blind
We couldn’t have differentiated mankind
We couldn’t have seen the differences
Marked as races

If we were born blind
We couldn’t have been able to find
The differences in us
Marked as colors

If we were born blind
We couldn’t have seen the many notions
We couldn’t have seen these differentiations
Marked as white or black nations

If we were born blind
We couldn’t have seen Julius as black
We couldn’t have seen Nick as white
Marked as racism

If we were born blind
We could have seen only one color
We could seen the color of humanity
Marked as uniformity and equality

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
