Poem: "Colour blind" By Uma Rana

Updated: Jun 15

By Uma Rana


It isn’t the fact that I am brown

But the way you look me up and down


These assumption you gather with such biased haze

Without me even uttering a sound or even a single phrase


You look strangely at my beautiful clothes that I adorn

It never registers that I’m not part of your norm


When I speak, to you my mother tongue sounds alien

You look shocked and disgusted it’s simple, you fool I’m Indian


These words of my forefathers flutter naturally in plain sight

Don’t you understand the world isn’t just every shade of white


Why do you need to put everyone in wooden boxes

Multiculturalism isn’t a game of noughts and crosses


I heard a lady say I never knew it was so bad

Blinkered and ignorant it makes me so mad


My whole life witnessing this oppressive state

I will overcome this by showing you love never hate


Walk in my shoes one day for the sake of mankind

I have a dream, to see, one day, a world that is colour blind
