Shades: A Poem on Racism

When I learned about colors,

I also learned shades

When I learned about humans,

I learned that we are one

How We Answer

Should it be – that life be dictated, opportunity restricted, based on someone’s hatred?

Should it be – that a lighter skin colour be a determining factor for me to reach higher?

Equity is Justice

Black does not mean thug

Hispanic does not mean illegal

Asian does not mean virus

Brown does not mean terror

*B . L . M*

It’s like we are living in a house split into floors 

Maybe we’d be good if we accept all our flaws
