Judging one another by our own book.
Condemning people for the way they look.
Inside we're still the same.
Different races are just a name.

Does it really matter that his skin has a tint?
Or that in his, there is no pigment?
If he got cut upon his head,
His blood would still come out red.

A better place this world could be,
If we could set our prejudices free.
If we would work together as one
Just think of all that could get done.

Such a strong message here...beautiful words, Eloise.  If we could only see ourselves as "one", indeed.

Eloise -
This says a lot about the unfortunate situation found in too many people's heads.
Very nice job of putting it together.

If red, white or polka dot,
it matters not you see.
The uniqueness of another
is that they are not a clone of me.

Eloise you have a wonderful way of getting to the point. I love it.  

Oh how much beauty you miss
when you fail to see
the real beauty that lives inside me.
