TITLE: What If Skin Came Purple?

What if skin came purple
Instead of shades of brown;
There’d be fuchsia fights
When sparks ignite
For holding violet down.

Imagine violet gangs
Taught to hate magenta friends;
Add a touch of pride,
Colors divide;
A gash that transcends.

Magentas might view lilacs
As tones to patronize--
A pale pinkish face
Deserves disgrace--
And hope for their demise.

Could lilacs comprehend
A hatred so intense
That twists into shame,
And who’s to blame;
Who comes to pink’s defense?

Picture pink the outcast
Among the purple nation;
Hear united cries
As tensions rise
From their tribulation.

What if their veil was lifted
To see they’re all the same;
Blue, white, and red
Form purple threads
Given different names.

What if skin came purple,
And eyes came colorblind,
And hearts were changed,
And love exchanged;
Like quilts they’d be combined.

A perfect painter's palette,
Spread with the Master’s hand;
Harmonious hues
Of lavender blues,
Or earth tones as he planned.

Earthtones as God designed will echo in my mind I'm sure. This was an interesting thought as there are many shades of purple.

Oh yes, one of my favorites this week, too. So well done; the thought doesn't preach, it just shares powerfully.
