Original Peoples

When I look at my people

I see a rainbow of colors

Living documents of the nations traversed

Standing proof of creation




And change

From the deepest ebony to the creamiest vanilla

The caramel and brown sugar in between

My people

The original people

From which all can be created

My people never to be underestimated

My people are highly debated

Seed planted in Mother Africa

With roots in the America’s and islands

In India and Australia

In Asia and the Middle East

The original people

All living with earth in peace

Loving one another and in tune with the spirit

Traveling, exploring, loving and bearing

All the colors of the rainbow

Living proof that even through struggle

We will grow
