A Christian poem of faith.

Do you realize that races are overrated,
since God is no respecter of persons?
Colored perceptions of hatred and bigotry
may ultimately destroy our existence.

Who needs people that:
• Lack brotherly love and respect for others
• Lust for power, wealth and domination
• Lack vision and purpose
• Lack maturity and wisdom
• Have attitudes of superiority
• Are poor in spirit
• Lack discipline and self-control

Colored attitudes, regarding skin tones and hues,
pale in contrast to uncontrolled emotions.
Without responsibility and accountability,
people get themselves in trouble rather quickly.

Who really wants or needs:
• Red's lustful, passion for someone other than your spouse?
• or Green's destructional envy of others' wealth or possessions?
• or Yellow's fear, smelling of urine from peeing ourselves?
• or White's collection of powdered deaths?
• or Blue's inner sadness or coldness towards others?
• or Brown's poverty, shame and overall uncleanness?
• or Orange steadfastness for a Godless life?
• or Purple's smugness from a self-conceived ideal of royalty?
• or Black's foreboding sicknesses and death?

Our human collective needs to find real commonality,
within this brotherhood of man, as planetary stewards.
Under girded with a genuineness of concern and love,
true understanding can lead to harmonious relationships.
We all have the ability to commune with God's Spirit;
however, we each must have a desire to do so.
Utopia may be unattainable, unlike… unity of community.
And yes, I forgive you, for thinking I might be racist.

Author Notes:

Loosely based on:
Acts 10:34; Gal 2:6; Deut 10:17; 1 Pet 1:17
