If We Were Born Blind - Poem by julius lenjatin

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
