(Obama: 'Trayvon Martin Could Have Been Me' ABC News , July 19, 2013. The President suggests that we judge people not on the color of their skin; but on the content of their character.)
We all wear clothes of different colors
to protect our skin from the elements.
We all wear skin of different colors
to protect our innards from the elements and our clothes.
Our color choices reflect our ancestry,
our moods; or life stances.
We all are the same inside:
We have muscles, and blood and bones
which serve the same purposes.
And we are all different inside:
our minds, our experiences; our souls
which record our lives and help us survive
Hopefully we can use them to find common ground.
