Proud of Our Identity

by Peacockoffire

You may ask why am I so dark?
I may ask why are you so fair?
Just as the peacock is proud to show
All its beautiful colors,
So am I proud of my identity.
The road has been rough,
But one needs to be tough,
By taking the power into your own hands,
You can surely pass the test,
The test set to us,
The test of time.

Behold! I am no different from you
The fact the Leopard is different from the Tiger,
Does not mean they arenít both cats.
I will continue to cherish the gift given to me from above
Lets all come together under one sky
And show the world we would prefer being ourselves
To any one else
And we would do all we can to promote our cultures
As we would not feel ashamed.
Just as the Peacock is proud to show
All its beautiful colors,
So are we proud of our Identity.
