How Could Anyone Hate You?
....your beautiful ebony skin
            eyes of chocolate brown
                    your golden heart that which
                              always displayed your Gentle ways.
                                                       could anyone hate you?
        or treat you with disrespect?
                 it was my fleshly father that proved
                               to be the mountain that rose up
                                          to seperate us with iron bars.
...I searched for answers of steel
             and found absolutely no injustice
                     in my spiritual father as he taught me
                                   It was not wrong... to Love you.

There is beauty in your thoughts and words and in your heart. People have a natural beauty of individuality. That's what makes the human? race. You made me think.

a very lovely and original take on racism...and a true one to boot!
