Color The World

My skin is kind of sort of brownish
Pinkish yellowish white.
My eyes are greyish blueish green,
But I’m told they look orange in the night.
My hair is reddish blondish brown,
But it’s silver when it’s wet.
And all the colors I am inside
Have not been invented yet.
- Shel Silverstein, "Colors"

The world isn't black and white and neither are people. We are as multi-colored as we are multi-faceted. Everyone is their own brand of unique. We are colorfully complex individuals; a living garden of humanity. The more we are different from each other, the more we are the same. Being unique individuals is what we have in common all across the world. This is something we should embrace, learn from and treasure.
