Racism The Universal Nightmare - Poem by Cheryl Griffith

Madness, sadness
Hating, degrading
Humanity dying
Die, die
Fight, fight
My fellowmen
To what end?

Twisted believes
Wounds unhealed
Each one bleeds, each one feels
Fear, such fear
Tears, such tears
Restless catastrophe
Past ideologies affecting the present
Wasted lives past away in strive
And hope's dream night conceals

Red, yellow black, white
Straight hair, kinky hair, see here!
Colors, mere colors
Of inferiority and superiority
Violent ideologies
Mad philosophies
Distorted facts
White good, bad black

On and on fighting, hating, killing
Humanity dying, dying
Ebony and ivory
No sight to see
Each man's beauty and dignity
Each color unique
God's creation all
Who cares? !
Racism here
A universal nightmare!
