Entwined
The color
Of mankind
Echoed in 
Our minds
The Realities
Of life
Forevermore
The ethnic
Flow of
Our blood
Pulsating
Giving us life
Giving us hope

We were 
Color blind
Or 
Perhaps
The world
Didn't understand
The differnt
Shades of 
Pastels

We were free
Of that kind of 
Bondage
That brought 
Many of us
To our knees 
Even as you 
Lay in my arms
Dying 
While our church
Was ingulfed 
In flames
Whispering to me
Be free my love
Be free
Lesser men would
Have gone mad 
You see
But not I 
I would not 
succumb to
That kind of 
Bondage..

Mr.Camacho, I found a compelling insight of life, literature, and flowing- artistic description- at your command in griping my attention. You are a gifted poet. I am honored and looking forward to reading your other poems. Betty Burdette

Wow! I'm very inspired when I read this :D This is really good, I really liked the line: "We were Color blind Or Perhaps The world Didn't understand The differnt Shades of Pastels" It poses a question like... "Could it have been our fault and could things have gone differently? Or would nothing have changed?" :D Good job!
