Divesity Whispers

Diversity has been hurting for generations! If one doesn't belong to the color, race, ethnicity or religion of the majority in a nation, they have to continuously prove themselves to be patriots, sufficiently talented and sometimes good enough to be able to live! Today with nationalism on the rise, diversity is whispering to nations -
Accept me and embrace me,
Before I give up on you,
Acknowledge me for who I am,
I am tired of proving myself to you!
I pick up the cotton,
And I also teach,
I cook and clean,
And stars too I have reached!
There's no color of
Intelligence and hard work,
There's no race of
Ability and rigor!
Why then my people are judged,
By how they look,
Not by who they are,
And what they do?
I have always brought talents,
ideas and experiences,
But I am faced with
Questions for generations!
Is it the fear of
difference of opinions,
Sharing of resources,
Or losing dominance?

But these matters
Don't belong to me exclusively,
No one has ever retained
Control over everything conclusively!
Sharing is the only way,
If you want to evolve and rise,
Different doesn't mean erroneous,
Variety in thought will only make you wise!
