One People - Poem by victor onyango

When you spot me, him, her and them at distance
What do you see?
Dark, white or yellow complexion
But is that us?
So u didn't see us but our colors
And you think that makes you different and maybe special.
I laugh and say think hard for you got it wrong.
If you are a believer,
Then think about this
We are fearfully and wonderfully made by God,
Or are there exceptions?
If you a non believer
Then look around
We are all made of matter
Or is some matter important than another?
From Africa to Europe
Asia to America,
We are one people-one community
The human community
We are not colors but people
Brothers and sisters from different human parents,
Exhibiting different cultures,
But inhaling same oxygen and
Expelling carbon four oxide.
I belong to one human family-one race
What about you?
