Black Or White Poem by Preetam Shetty

Black Or White

Rating: 5.0

Standing with the crowd
Why can I not be proud?
Since ages I have been differed
For the reason I am colored

My existence is similar to you
I sleep, I drink, I chew
Even I have an insight
It’s just that I am dark; you’re light

Don’t look at me with disgust
We dwell on the same crust
I ask you will it be right
To say we need day and no night

If you are a gem to your mother
I am a loved one too, my brother
I deserve no hate or despect
I am a human, please respect

To me and you a time will come
A day in the divine kingdom
A judgment without respite
For he sees no Black or White

Black or white, you are loved and I am loved aswell, oh man you just revealed the fact that we are all human, I thinks from the moment a person discriminates he or she loses his or her power of being a human, yep he or she will be a less human because hi/she will by then have lost the value and 1 quality of being a human and that is to see everybody as equal and aonly as human nothing more and nothing less, thanks to you for the good poem, keep up.

Dear Preetam, Completely agree. Color of skin does not matter at all. I have a lot of wondreful friends with a very dark skin. We are all children of one and the same God. When Einstein said: 'There are only two things infinite: 1. the universe and 2. the stupidity of humans, Just I am not sure about the universe.' I am sure he was thinking about these people who feel superior just because of their (usually white) colour. Discrimination is one of the biggest disgraces for humanity.

We maybe different race and appearance but we are all the same... I don't care u are dark or black my friend, Preetam because u are bright inner/inside...It is better than having white skin but dark inside....Our appearance is just a mask what the real thing is what we have inside...I respect u, u are right...Keep writing something good and real like this...
