Battle of Shades and Tints

by Ebenezer Mowete

The maker separated light from darkness

But humanity he made in oneness

People around rendering themselves soulless

Quarrying enmity with zealous harness

Foes are lacking when you love and hate less

Kids born with love miserably grow hopeless

Of uniting racial dogmas of chumminess

This has been the battle of shades and tints

A maximum taste of hate with no mint

We can only see the light when we squint

So, we are not blinded by misled soleprints

Crafting for the next era a blue-print

Through thorough and deliberate reprints

Of healing broken history with bands of splints
