Racisim
by Lara La Bryer

You can see me
What color am I?
.
And what does that make me?
Who does that make me?
Now you can continue on
Now that we know what color I am
And who I am
And a whole new world is lost,
And our lives may have been better,
But we are lost.
The world is lost, and it has always been
Not because I am white, or black...
But because I am purple
And we are all lost
And we do not see
Our true colors
.
Is it fear...
Or ignorance that makes us this way?
Ignore me now for I am purple
And you are green,
And now we know this.
.
So we remain lost.
