COLORS
Poetry by M. Linda Steffey

To me there's no difference in colors
The red, yellow, black man and white
We're no stranger to sadness and laughter
We're all the same in God's sight...

Our hearts each have the same yearnings
All all hearts need to share love
All things come in their good time
With wisdom He sends from above...

Olive skin He gave Asian peoples
Black skin the African man
Pale skin He gave Europeans
Desert peoples the color of sand...

I love the difference in peoples
Interesting they are and so
When everyone learns of each other
Helps hearts understand and grow...

We all need respect, understanding
For each other's different ways
It may help end all our wars here
And fill earth with happier days...

So look to your brother, your sister
Find the good that God put there
For God placed beauty in each of us
And it's all very precious and rare......
