THE STORY BEHIND DIFFERENT RACES by Richie Kharis

THE STORY BEHIND DIFFERENT RACES by Richie Kharis 

Many times they act like they are holy sanctimonious 
And every day they pray, but still they can not tell the change 
Another day comes hate for them, love is an easy exchange 
Yet far away behind their eyes lies the truth that may be strange 

Which is the story of two beings with no reverence but difference 
They swear to hate and kill their conscience and they welcome ignorance 
One sees the other as toxic, and the other sees her acerbic
Now we have two enemies that would never welcome amnesties 
They vowed to kill each other cause they were born in a different nation 
They think this big world isn't meant for miscegenation 
So they hurt various races that have different faces
Wishing there were no other but just them having graces

They failed to realize something pertinent that their lives are not theirs
Death comes in the dark with no warnings and no exceptions
Six feet buried is the soul they swore not to care
Yet The same ground finds their souls buried in despair 

Different colors, different thoughts, different flaws  but one people
Some may find this to be ugly but the reality is ugly.
The earlier we let go RACISM,  the earlier we save our children from dying
For there is no remedy to one nation without love and forgiveness.
