People come in shades

Of colours of skin

From very black to pale

That racists don’t understand

Life is never black or white

We live on the planet

That we all need to share

For our future to be secure

Fighting over skin colour

Man denouncing and killing man

The logic is beyond me

Please help me to understand

Is it fear that motivates you

Or some inherent hate

What is that prevents you

Loving your fellow man

If you’re looking for a reason

Your humanity should dictate 

That love will always win

It will always defeat hate
