Color-Blind

Shaima AlShaikh is back with a new poem for us titled Color-Blind! We hope you enjoy it

Taint me black, so I cannot see,

The malice that this world has come to be.

The apartheid that springs us apart.

The prejudice within our heart.

***

You the son of Adam and Eve,

Him, the unfortunate son of mischief?

Rid him from all, as you please

You, the superior, the carrier of his fetters key

***

I’m color-blind, I cannot see,

The difference between you and me.

The color of your skin,

Is the color of your sin?

***

I write you this poem of melancholy

You, the superior, the carrier of my fetters key

Neglect me not, in this wretched cage

Leave me not, on this scribbled page.

***

I’m color-blind, I cannot see,

Why you are better than me?

Is it the color of my skin?

Will that forever be my sin?

***
