Beautiful Consists Of More Than One Colour

This Poem is about racism
Have you wondered: That Homogeneousity is relative and does not exist? Why air is a mixture of gases and not just one matter? how the radiation from Sun consists of several raws? How Metal and Wood can make up a door? Why each Animal Genus has a species and more? Why diversity is the bedrock of Nature? And no National Flag consists of only one colour? Why then: Green and Black Grapes cannot be at par? Coffee and Whiskey cannot be served in the same Bar? A Sunflower and the Rose cannot grow in the same Jar? And then we make these pairing possibilities seem so afar? And Yet! Some make one less and the other better. Even with the advantage given to the latter, it still turns out to be the hater. Leaving the former feeling very bitter and in both minds hatred litter and forgetting that the difference is not as thick as a centimeter.

    Racism is racism and bigotry is bigotry no matter how man or governments try to disguise it. We've come a long way but still have miles to go. God help the hater for hatred is an acid and acids destroy the vessel that holds it.

    You really explored this topic very thoroughly. It's a joy to see where your mind takes you and how this poems leaves me in deep thought. Seeing how this all about colors I'm surprised you didn't mention the rainbow or the northern lights and how they ACCEPT the whole spectrum... haha... awesome read anyhow! I'll have to check out more of your pieces soon :)
