Very idealistic, and a new idea about the issue as well. Most people say don't think about color, but I agree with your view and am very pleased with the way that you supported yourself in this lyrical form. My only concern is that...it's all good until the last line. I understand the viewpoint, but you've made the rest of the poem so wondefully universal, perhaps just leave God out of it? Still, impressive work and well done!

| Wren Craven chapter 1 . 11/27/2003
this is really good! it addresses a sensitive issue from a non-biased point of view. i also don't understand why people discriminate agianst colour...it's all the same to me...awesome job!
check out my work sometime, if you've got the time...

it's an really likeable poem! i'm white myself but i'm reeally , really against racism cause some of my friends are african americans and asian and more so although i can't see it truly from you side i can still relate in some sense. Anyway, i really enjoyed it. Good work!

This was beautifully (sp) simplistic, almost child-like. I wish more people thought so clearly as you do. Please don't be sorry though, that this deals with a more sensitive issue, you're perfectly entitled to your own thoughts, (plus you have positive ones, so that's always good). Another fabulous poem!

That is entirely true. I may be white, but I don't treat anyone different. Like you said we're all brothers and sisters in the eyes of God, so what does color really matter? This is a great great poem! Very excellent, Ms. Summerdazed!

I like this one, both for its message and for the way its laid out. It's a pretty simple structure, but often that's very effective, and I think that's the case here.
The one small thing I would say is that you might consider getting rid of the A/N at the bottom. The poem would have a stronger message standing alone. Readers like to do a little work! ;)
| Clouded Crimson chapter 1 . 8/23/2003
So true! However, I don't feel that white is the envy of all eyes!
| Free-Writer chapter 1 . 8/23/2003
Great job! you said it the right way!
| Roxanne Barnett chapter 1 . 8/23/2003
very very iggo. i feel exactly the same way
| Jade Black chapter 1 . 8/23/2003
Great! Relevant, cool and an issue that I tend to feel alot about. Have you ever noticed that most white people with racist issues have a really good tan?
| Ephemeral Dreams chapter 1 . 8/22/2003
wow, your poem really hits the nail on its head. It's not only annoying how skin color leads to racism all over the world, and makes people fight, but I think it's really sad that people bleed and die for something seemingly so shallow, anyway. Your poem is a little bit like one I wrote a long time ago, except I was thinking more of animals and humans of different countries. Sort of about how all things bleed red blood.
Kudos to you. You're a wonderful poet too, I must say.
