While variation exist in cultures thru peoples minds...there are no physical differences... thus seeing a world thru race is only done by racists since it is a false vision used as a weapon ... *no written requirements beyond honesty
MAX: TWO ENTRIES>>>

Very true but in the alpha dog worl we are exposed to many trying to lead will depict the differences to gain status and ploy hatered or fear to gain power. Very wise words.

A Dog and Cat Tale

 
When castle kings ruled the land they did so with great care.
For they knew of magicís power existing everywhere.
One such kingdom lay far away in the land of Cat.
Next to Dog a mongrel place this is where it sat.
Between the two battles waged for reasons no one knew.
Robbing peace for everyone as their skirmish grew.
Along one day a wizard came offering a chance for peace.
He never told of his plan on how the wars would cease.
A gift he promised to each its people should they take the deal.
A cursed cast spell was the truth this too late he would reveal.
To the citizens of Cat he promised nine lives they each could live.
And for Dogís people might and size this he would gladly give.
With out question both sides took what seemed an upper hand.
Thinking how their newfound power could seize the others land.
Show kindness, love and loyalty was all the wizard asked.
Their solemn oath sealed their fate as the magic spell was cast.
When all at once they morphed to beasts changed forever more.
Unable to hold club or sword unable to wage war.
Meowing cries filled Cat land they hissed at what was done.
From Dog kingdom grew barking growls over what they had become.
To all parts of the world they fled seeking shelter and a home.
To take comfort in a strangers touch to feel not so all alone.
Still to this day a few remain to learn the lessen taught.
Act like cats and dogs you too shall see the trouble it has brought.

Have Mercy On Who You May Entertain Unaware

Mercy is such a beautiful word with forgiven intentions
At times with heavenly interventions   †
A hug at the moment to ease ill-related tensions † †
† †
No shoes on my feet Iím soaking wet † †
I donít know you man we just met † †
Have mercy on me and let me warm my hands † †
I understand † †
But no, youíre a man † †
Who is wet, with no shoes † †
If you give me a blanket, you will never lose † †
Door slammed in my face † †
An Angel walking this earth, the first time feeling human disgrace † †
Could you help me with some food, please † †
My cup held up, Iím begging on my knees † †
I got mine you could get yours † †
Another opportunity slammed by a door † †
† †
Michael the Archangel sighs in disbelief † †
My heavenly fatherís son got nailed for all this earthly grief † †
Help me someone, heís got my purse † †
I sprint into action, no shoes, wet, hungry, but ready to serve † †
Police shows up, the woman is now confused † †
Ahh...the man was black, IÖI think he didnít have on any shoes † †
Curious eyes darted over to me † †
The purse in my hand Iím guilty as can be † †
The womanís eyes look upon me with disgust † †
Mistrust † †
My heavenly creed I had to somehow mentally adjust † †
The judge looks at my Moorish face † †
I felt like an Angel who had fallen from grace † †
Condemned by the color of my skin † †
Guilty as charged guilty as sin † †
†† †
The woman hugs her attorney her revengeful eyes enlarged † †
No remorse from her actions silently discharged † †
As Iím led away † †
I heard the woman say † †
See you canít trust people like that † †
Their sneaky as sewer rats † †
† †
Judgement Day  
Sins of old speak with words to say † †
As the Arch Angel, I stand to the right of Godís throne † †
I look at the weary faces, to decide their fate will not take that long † †
A woman bows her head. Her life is read in spans † †
My child have you been kind to woman or to man † †
Yes, I go to daily worship I give my weekly ties † †
Iíve never stole, or even told lies † †
I pray on my knees every night † †
Accepting everyone in my eyes as being right † †

As the commandment thy should never lie † †
Have you complied † †
† †
Yes, at best † †
Are you sure my child † †
Take a moment and think a good while † †
Yes, I have nothing to fear † †
Okay then my dear † †
Two roads to lead my feet † †
Your destiny you shall soon meet † †
Would you like to repent from the lie you just told † †
Not me, my lifeís history is the guide to one of those roads † †
Hell, hath no fury like a woman scorned † †
In life you had an Angel adorned † †
With a number in the system † †
Stigmatized as a black man with a striped uniform and plastered to his shirt, a long injustice digit † †
And you stand before me on Judgment Day and lie † †
As your life continues to flash by † †
† †
I am not an earthy dictator † †
Your fate given by me, your Heavenly Creator † †
For this, you will be confined to hellís damnation † †
Down with the other liars with no reincarnations † †
ButÖbut...wait † †
The woman looks up in shame, ready to debate † †
This final ruling no soul shall anticipate † †
You orchestrated the life of another † †
His color of another mother † †
And you never even knew his name † †
You showed no remorse or earthly shame † †
He came to your defense when you cried out to me † †
You were too blinded by his skin color is all you could see † †
For this, there is no second chance † †
In regards to such a hideous circumstance † †
Hatred Bigotry Discrimination † †
Will never stand on feet in my heavenly congregation † †
Remember †
 †
Hebrews 13:2 †  
Itís ordained by me to you † †
ďDo not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.Ē †  
So, beware † †
To treat everyone kind † †
So, you will never find † †
When your life span is flashed back † †
No one wants their determination to enter my home thrown out of whack † †
We all want to hear with joyous eyes of tears † †
A Job well done † †
Yes, I am a determined one † †
No more time to atone † †
This day I have been blessed to sit with God on his heavenly throne

The Truth

 
 
Race is a total myth man, I don't care what you say  
That's why there's so many white guys in the NBA  
Like, acknowledging racial differences equals disrespect  
Look at me everyone I'm politically correct!  

Also men and women are like, totally the same  
And I don't care one bit what the meanie scientists claim  
Evolution is a lie and Biology is a joke  
C'mon everybody now It's time we all got woke!

Being
ignorant
full of pretence
is not so bad
so long
as you can dodge
the psychological
Bat
that will smack you
to your knees
and smash your head
into the ground
of a Reality
that is always
happy
to explain

Your Pain

That the color
of your skin
means nothing
when you look
Within

There is only
One faith
Above all others
Above all faiths
We have been trained
to believe
it is faith
within
Ourselves
the faith
to be
A human being
within the race
of upright
walking apes
where people believe
genetics
and the color
of your skin
Defines You
as a human being

It is truely
the real stepfathers/mothers
who can
hold their head up proud      
watching a child grow
knowing blood
or the color
of their skin
means nothing
when you look
Within

Sad times
come
when your of age
inner loneliness
because of your belief
in your color
will slowly
break you
on life's stage

Ringing the bells
of ignorance
in your rage
knowing
deep down
you built the cage

Confusing  Racists

There are some people
in this world
today
who's skin
changes color
yet
there is no scientist
in play
who is making a Pill
so We all
could do
the Same

It is though
tradition and CULTure
that we are loseing
our humanity
it is though
tradition and CULTure
that pitts people
against people
that breaks the back
of commonsense
and the innocent
who are forced
  to watch
        the eyes
              of a soul
                      Die
                        Inside

It is not the colour
of the skin
that you live in
or even
where you are born
it is
the colour
of your thoughts
that define
your state of mind
within a world
where thoughts
are becoming
colour blind

If one can
find the ability
to think
with unbiased
honesty
one cannot say
one feels
that one is
the color of the skin
that one is born in

One can only feel
Human

Open Letter

I would of thought
a serious subject
such as this
would require more
then what i have posted
IT IS SAD
to have limits
on  serious subjects
Oh well
such is life
