Colors and races

According to Hindu mythology
 Dark color represents almighty
 Lord Krishna himself was dark and blue
 Millions today starve for glimpses of him to view

 It is still a hard feeling in minds
 We dislike the black color wherever we find
 Express freely against it and tease
 Let us not do it for God's sake please

 Color, cast and religion
 Should never be our concern
 Wherever we are and whatever we profess
 Just bow head before him and confess

 “O God, take me out from this world”
 The moment you feel that I am untrue and turning cold
 I shall forget not what is revealed in your teachings
 Let not a single word go as missing”

 Who are we on earth to paint anyone as evil?
 It is his creation and no one has power or will
 I shall cry at any kind of ill treatment
 Curse my ills and openly resent

 Person suffers due to his own act
 No one has any right to offer comment or act
 If bad weather or region is meant to suffer
 Let come forward and gracefully offer

 Almighty is ocean of mercy
 He conveys it through regular frequency
 We fail to grab the message
 Only to witness dark history on page

 Can't we see with our own naked eyes?
 Why nature is against us even if whole mankind try?
 The wrath and nature's fury is seen
 Yet we are blind and not very much keen

 O lord, give little sense to all those
 Who are bent upon and deliberately choose
 The way of annihilating particular race
 Now they themselves will face worst kind of chase

 Let us be tolerant to all races and colors
 White is peace and black is tolerance
 We need both in our day to day deal
 We need to express solidarity and not to conceal
