No More Racism
By Bob Branco
When God had everything else in place,
He decided to create the human race.
There are males and females, but that’s not all.
Some are short, while others are tall.
Some have straight hair, while others have curly.
Most people are kind, but many are surly.
Our skin is black, brown, red or white,
We could be blind, or have full sight.
While we take most of our differences for granted today,
Our color is not thought of by some people that way.
Color is a characteristic, like other features we possess,
It shouldn’t be thought of any more or any less.
There are riots, protests, discrimination and such
Because color is criticized way too much.
Some think color is a cause for much insult,
Which doesn’t make for a good end result.
When President Obama first won the election,
I thought this country was headed in a different direction.
A black man was in charge, and that was okay,
But did that mean the end of racism today?
Despite the black man who became in charge,
Racism remains extremely large.
We must emphasize love, and follow God’s word,
That message, for sure, must always be heard.
So what if we are different, we are all one race,
When it comes to racism, there is no such place.
If you see someone different, please heed my call.
What could annoy you? Nothing at all.
Like you, he is God’s special child,
There is no need for you to go wild.
If we all live as one major group,
God will help us remain in the loop.
