Color Blind (Part One)

This is one of the first poems I ever wrote, I think I was around twelve. Being that today is a day that we honor the memory of a man who fought for equality; for our country to be one that everyone could come together in....I thought it was a fitting day to post this poem.

Color Blind
(Part One)

Many people see colors
Many see the outside
Many can't look deeper
And this you can't deny

I don't know why they do it
I can't see what they see
I wish they could look deeper
Deeper into me

Many people are different
And that's how it has always been
But that doesn't matter
If all you see is skin

I know you can't get people to change the way they feel
I know because I've tried
I just wish that one day
Everyone can be color blind
