Brotherhood

How can a child of
God lay claim
that his brother
shares none of his blood?

There is no room
for such hostility
if a rainbow can play
in tranquility
in colors as beautiful
as our skin should be seen.

So where comes the right
to destroy a family
by judging one child
more pleasant to see?
