(125) Racial Peace - Poem by Melvina Germain

An intermingling of the races,
coming together, holding hands
with smiles and laughter.
Enjoying all differences.
Sharing, loving, showing
respect in so many ways.
Living in harmony, realizing
although our religious beliefs
are not the same, we are still
people and we have feelings,
we hurt, we cry, we grieve,
and the inevitable, we die.
Not wasting precious time here
on earth, we are all God’s
people and we all have worth.
When we can join together as
one, until our earths work is
done, then we have achieved
what was believed to be the
impossible. We will have
achieved. “Racial Peace”

    Melvina -

    Absolutely lovely! but easier said then done. We need more uplifting voices such as your own. Please read my 'Another Kind of Love' and see if you like it.

    Hope you're having a glorious day!

    We should build a friendship bridge between the peoples of all culture, race and creeds.
    This seems like an impossible dream, but nothing is impossible with God.
    Beautiful poem, Melvina.

    Warmest regards,
