Cherish Yourself and Embrace Humanity

One Humanity by Geeta Biswas

We are not the same but we are equal
According to the laws of creation
Melanin determines our complexion
We are parts and pieces of creation
Who are we to judge one another?
Among us are philosophers and scientists
Yet we still live in hatred and confusion
Nature is there staring at us and smiling
While rubbing its immortality on our faces
***
I won’t live my life being a colour
I see human beings beyond complexion
I see one humanity not various human race
I see billions with beautiful bodies and souls
***
People are dying of inferiority complex
Cosmetic surgeries are rampant this age
People has ventured into skin alteration
Dark-skinned wants to be pale-skinned
Pale-skinned wants to be dark-skinned
Is it true that human nature is defective?
That slight difference makes us unique
We must be pleased in our various skins
Biology and culture regulates our lives
Yet we must utilize wisdom as we live
