We are born into this world, to fulfil purpose and to thrive,
Each to love not create strife
We are uniquely created and crafted
Each one of us, irrespective of man-made apartheid
Carefully painted and on occasion
In chosen locations and vocations
To fulfil God’s divine assignment
What then makes it right
For one being to start strife
Another to hit out with a knife
To snuff out a life?
We did not choose the colour of our skin
Or consult with our Maker about our sheen
So we will revel in our form
Even though it may not be accepted as norm.
Let love prevail.

May the God who hates violence
Answer and bring judgement
Vindicate us o God. 🙏🏿
