White or Black, We are Still the Same

From the same soil, God created black and white, but they were the same.
Long before black was black,
Colors were just colors,
When God began to work,
He had an idea.

He created the world,
Such a magnificent beauty,
He wondered!
I will create a man to be a keeper.

And to him, black was just black,
And white was just white,
From his own creativity out of,
A black dark brown soil he created a man.

And to him black was just black,
And white was just white,
From the same dark brown soil,
He created white and black men,
To him their colors were just colors and,
They were the same.

To a white man,
A black man was a burnt creation,
For in his jokes he joked,
God said look! "This one is burnt".

Yet to God, black is just black,
And white is just white,
And no one is burnt.
