Race Scarred

Age old beliefs of skin tone judging
Burrowed deep in values and teachings,
Inevitable repeating of past hurts and turmoil,
Leading tense situations to simmer, then boil.

Unity regarding skin deep beauty–
A fantasy outweighed by hate and cruelty.

Time to think differently,
And commit to true harmony,
Start with empathy,
Listen and learn continuously.

Look beyond the surface,
To realize healing and peace.
