Zebra Crossing

 
   
     Can we all afford
extra rights of way to walk
        our prejudices

     What if we were born,
Black and White tattooed forehead -
     'Hate has no place here.'

NaPoWriMo 2013 (national poem writing month) has come to an end. Sob, sob not! Glad to have taken part and fortunate that something popped up in my head to write every day! It was my second time taking part. First time last year. It's been great to have you reading. A big thank you to my fellow poets for their support. Thank you all for coming on the journey with me.

  14. Great message, Adura - sadly, we haven't reached that point in our evolution. Will we ever? I sure hope so.
