Children of the World

To the black child

You are beautiful and you are special

Do not let anyone discount you because of your colour

Your hair, your lips, your body shape or anything about you

The Great Creator made you with that colour for a reason

So let it shine and shine proudly

Do everything you can to highlight your difference

In a good way

 

To the red child

You are beautiful and you are special

Do not let anyone discount you because of your colour

Your way of life, your eyes, your cheeks, your cultural ways

The Great Creator made you that way for a reason

Embrace your ways, your history, your truth,

Do everything you can to highlight your difference

In a good way

 

To the yellow child

You are beautiful and you are special

Do not let anyone discount you because of your colour

Your eyes, your height, your way of life or anything about you

The Great Creator made you with that way for a reason

So let your diversity shine through proudly

Do everything you can to highlight your difference

In a good way

 

To the white child

You are beautiful and you are special

Do not let anyone discount you because of your colour

Your history, the errors of our colonial past, your culture,

The Great Creator made you with that colour for a reason

So let your philanthropy your adventurous spirit shine through

Do everything you can to highlight your difference

In a good way

 

To the peoples of the world

We are different superficially to add beauty to the world

Like the four fingers and thumb we all have a role to play

Our job is to learn the lesson each has to teach

Let’s not confuse superficialities with permanence

Look beyond and see the world‘s infinite splendor

Know that each colour has equal value on the pallet of life

Let us strive for equality, beauty and diversity in a good way.
