We All Bleed Red:

by Scott Cole   Sep 19, 2017

I'm not defined by my outer appearance
That first glance of what you can see,
So don't judge me by my skin color
Cause that's not what delineates me.

My complexion may not resemble yours
So my merit might easily be misread,
But on the inside I'm exactly like you
Underneath my skin I also bleed red.

Nobody's saturation outshines another
Though all of us are flamboyant people,
We're all painted in God's own likeness
So everyone of us are created equal.

For it's our character that depicts us
It portrays that picture of who we are,
And it's the achievements of our heart
That embellishes our colour from afar.

For pigments doesn't emphasize impression
It's just the value that's given to a hue,
It's not the self worth of a single individual
That has a different skin color than you.

    Scott, Amen brother, amen! You have said it so wonderfully. We are all part of the same race, the human one. It's sad that so many people can't understand that. Well done-
