Under skin of black, brown, or white, we are all the same.
We all bleed red blood.
A rainbow nation should be our aim.
Our costumes may be different in color,
but under yellow silk or blue cotton, we are all the same.
Take a lesson from a thriving garden–
flowers of violet, pink, and orange say, we are all the same;
we need love, water, and care.
A rainbow of languages spoken and yet, we are all the same.
Accept other cultures, learn their ways,
for tolerance is key. We are all the same.
