Humanly Correct

A Poem by Poetic Beauty
"

humanly correct not politically correct

"

We all bleed scarlet red

Blood pulsing in our veins

Every person feels pain

And cries salty tears

When sorrow is near

 

We all need air to breathe

Saturating our two lungs

While heart beating has begun

Kidneys filter our blood

And thoughts in our mind do flood

 

So why does our color matter?

It is merely our skin

Why did this even begin?

We have two eyes to see

Look with your heart, my plea

 

Won’t we all be ashamed

When we see God’s marbled skin

With this insight the weeping will begin

Why can’t you humans see

You are all magnificent

In the fact you’re different

 

Every child needs love

Woman needs a hand to hold

A person with to grow old

Man needs a woman’s heart

Before completeness starts

 

We are all the same inside

One mind to form thoughts

On heart so love is sought

Two lungs in order to breathe

Tears allowing us to grieve

 

One nose for us to smell

Two ear in which to hear

So let go of anger and fear

Let your heart be your guide

And love will always be at your side

 

Won’t be all be ashamed

When we see God’s marbled skin

With this insight the weeping will begin

Why can’t you humans see

That you all are magnificent

In the fact you’re different

Few of us have power or titles, wealth or wisdom, but, what we do have is Self Unique.

Whereas your entire poem has great emotion and sincerity, this stanza says so much to me, ' We are all the same inside ~ One mind to form thoughts ~ On heart so love is sought Two lungs in order to breathe ~ Tears allowing us to grieve '

This is truly a poem about Diversity and inclusion that we all can benefit from. There will always be debates and arguments on what is right and what is wrong, but in the end your poem says it best we are all the same inside and out. Our colors should be celebrated and not debated on. Even in our own history this concept was there "Melton pot" where we all come together with one vision and the same purpose to live life to the fullest without hurting the person next to us.

Not everyone has the vision of people that you have or has an idea that God maybe multi-colored and not just one color as represented here on earth. Imagine the surprise indeed. Excellent writing and super topic to shine light on.
