are you a black and white person

or radiating a multi-coloured hue

 

those you love have absolutely no faults

so you are loyal generous and caring

 

while others you hold at a distance

reluctant to give them a hand

 

or try to embrace all equally

treating them all in a similar vein

 

it’s how we treat others that reflects

our genuine character, for it’s too easy

 

to discriminate, judge and foster hate

more effort is needed to share our care

 

but what a loving and contented world

we’d have if we extend our hand more often
