Babatunde Aremu


I Am Colour Blind


I can see clearly
My eyes are very sharp
My inner sight is sound
Yet I am blind
I cannot decipher the difference
Between blacks, whites, reds and suchlike
I cannot see the tribes
I am blind to what divides
I am blind to intolerance
I cannot see contentions
But I am not blind to love,
Unity, peace, joy, goodness
And suchlike that makes us one
I can see all under one umbrella
That's what I see
So, let everyone be colour blind
But let all see what binds us together
