These natural black overalls

These natural white overalls

These natural brown overalls

These natural yellow overalls

Are just overalls like all overalls

We wear them to cover worldly alls

And take them off for earth to blend

Then our souls are seen as one

Who fights for packaging

When all they do is package?

We end up bickering for nothing

And neglect the purpose of our journey

I’m black, I white

I’m poor, I’m rich

I’m ignorant, I’m literate

Which soil, six feet under, knows these?

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)

Cecilia, this poem is simple but filled with wisdom… even in history the societies that have thrived are those that espoused pluralism… Because all scripture says that we are created from one soul… and I cannot hurt another without being hurt myself… I pray for people to listen…

I love this one Cecilia. Be it whatever we all come into this world the same and we all leave the same way too. No one seems to want to take this into account. They rather look at the color to decide whether what or who is wearing the rite. Great work


And that is so true, neither the vultures nor the cold know the difference, neither the termites nor the rats know the difference, yet we bicker on complexion’s superiority when we are hearts and souls with what seems like clothes for cover ups. Sad Rajiv.


Yes and underneath our coveralls, our skin and face, we all bones and blood ~ the same. Equal. I wish everyone did think like us. World would be a better place in which to live ๐Ÿ’œ
