CHILDREN OF COLOR

Children of color,

When will we learn

To embrace your differences

And give you your turn.

All that you want

Is the world to be fair, 

Others to respect you,

And belong some where.

You are willing to work,

To do what it takes

To accomplish great things

And accept the mistakes

That come as a result of

Trying your best

Despite the name calling

And all the rest:

Others pretending

You aren’t even there,

Or giving a frown

And a demeaning stare;

Others refusing to

Give you a chance

And trying to destroy

Your pride with a glance.

Why can’t we see,

Our own little one

Wanting respect

By the time it’s all done.

Instead, we ignore,

Distrust, and we say

The things to prove

You are “just that way.”

If things are to change,

We must all do our part

To accept people of

 Color Into our heart.

Yu/stan/kema
