Is there a measurement of purity in this world?
Is purity a reality?
Besides the elements in nature
Besides the unaffected mind of an infant
Is there such a thing as being pure?
How do you measure purity?
By the color of bare flesh?
By the salt in our tears?
By the blood in our veins?
We descended from the ancients
What is white but a color?
What is black but a shade?
Creams and mocha
Shadow and light
Pure races are a façade
No one can trace back to their first generation of life
No one knows the ancestors of other people aside from their own
People like to believe that their ancestry is simple and plain
Purity is of goodness
The original state of being
Purity is the goal of achievement
What all seek to have
Purity is a dream that hardly exists
How can one judge the worth of a man
By the color of their skin or the race of their fathers?
Purity is one that can never be measured
Mixed races are disowned and discarded
In many places
However, for what reason are they the ones
Who are worth less than others?
Purity is an unattainable nightmare
The plague of societies of past, present, and future
