About the Poem

One day I realized that the color of one's skin is not important to me but the character of that certain person is. We discriminate against other races not knowing the damage we have caused them. They are human beings like the rest of us. God created every one to be equal.

misty's words have always worked into my soul..and brought out a darkness in me.. that i'm sure is in all of us.. out so that i may view my own soul

Color Of One's Heart

Color of one's heart.
Color of one's skin, makes no difference.
Who you are within.
They ridicule knowing the damage they cause.
Word-by-word you put up stones to block those hateful words.
Keep the faith to tear down the fortress of stones.
