Colour Blind - Poem by Kaila George

I often shake with anger
As I read up on how

People are so blind
When it comes to each others race

Why must there be so much hate
Over the colour of ones skin

Why must people rant and rage
About the culture you belong too

Why is it a sin to be who you are?
Why must we all be persecuted?
For being just you

It boggles the mind
That still lives and breaths
In this day and age

I am indeed very luck
To live were I live

I have never seen the KKK
I have never been apart of a apartheid

I have never shed a tear over the anger
Of losing one simply because of the colour our skin

It's all a mystifying unthinkable part of humanity
That always baffles me

Or even say I am proud to be human
When I see so much hate for just being you

Why is this so
Why does this live and breathe in this world
We like to call our home

Can't we all just be colour blind
And be thankful for what we have

Can't we all just be human and say
I love you my friend
One often dreams…I can dream cant I?

    You're certainly not colour-blind when it comes to reading mind and heart. Nor so to good poetry. Great stuff-M (Report) Reply

    You are truly blessed to be color blind. If ONLY the rest of the world could see deep inside and look at people for who they are, not their ethnicity. (Report) Reply
