What is the color of the World, Black or White?

Does Humanity has color or Race?

But man created one for it- segregation!

To satisfy our ego and superiority

Behold the howling of crying daughters in slave camps,

Watch the son dressed in sackcloth on a slavery farm

All because of the color of the skin

Father and Mother sold to distant kingdom

Children and Sucklings marked with Zeal of ownership like a pet.

Fear of the skin color has driven out man back and forth

Sending the children of men into captivity.

The wanderers gathered none to eat...

...the feeble perished for lack of wants.

Earth rumbled, Ocean splashed at the chaos created by skin color.

Distance agony of the fallen is heard in the Abyss.

The mighty spreads their wings as Eagle to devour it's prey.

Same water, same blood, same bones, same tendons, muscles and tissues.

Made up all race of the World.

Skin color might be the slight difference

Eye colors might be the distinctive feature.

But humanity doesn't care, it never demarcates nor discriminates.

Same birth, same death.

Humanity waxed stronger without racism or ethnic discrimination.

"What is good for the Goose, is good for the Gander"

It never matters if you are black or white

What matters most is Humanity in Unity!

Nice poem @oluwoleolaide

Good arrangement and wonderful expressions

Our colour doesn't matter, what matter most is our understanding towards each other. With unity we can achieve big. With understanding about both colour will answer to the same call of death. No discrimination.
