Multi-Hued Humanity

‚Äč

In the beginning was Black

Silent and infinite

Light entered the Dark and together

They created Everything in Time

 

In time, Everything created us:

A rainbow of browns

Deep dark umber to pale rosy beige

Multi-hued humanity

Multi-gendered, multi-abled, multi-tongued

Children of Balance

 

No one knows why a gang

Stepped out of the rainbow

Tagged white 

All over every home and mind

Beat down Black

Treated Earth like dirt

 

We multi-hued struggle to find

A name for them

The gang claiming white

 

How lonely they must be!

 

They burn the ground

As they back away
