Be frank


IT'S REALLY SAD WE ARE IN THE YEAR OF 2013 AND THIS WORLD IS STILL TALKING ABOUT RACISM PEOPLE STILL FOCUS ON A PERSONS COLOR INSTEAD OF SEEING A HUMAN BEING. SAD THAT THIS IS WHAT KIDS ARE BEING TAUGHT! ! ..... Spanish Huggz


Let us be frank
And thank
To all those who preach
And privately teach

Spread the hatred
And be kindly led
Like fools
As we are all bloody full

World is still believing
Pain still not relieving
Racism raises head
To send us in gallows as dead

White is nice color
Black is no inferior either
Still prefer to go after bright skin
To have beautiful company and very much keen

This is universal truth
No one can deny as such
World may never change
Even we may grow old with age

What are we teaching to kids?
What thoughts we feed?
Nothing more special to impress
On the contrary dark picture before their face

We may talk of advancement
But in fact it is dismal movement
We are where we were
Nothing to surprise and no more to dare

    Yes, it is sad we look at skin rather than a person's soul. And isn't it ironic that everyone talks about God and how much they love him. Did God not create ALL people, white, brown, black, yellow? Such hypocrisy! We must teach our children to be tolerant of everyone, to respect everyone. Then we must teach ourselves to do the same. Good poem. (Report) Reply
