Beauty in Diversity

You claim I am flawed

You say I do not belong

My colour different

My body too big

I am attracted to same-sex

I love all genders!

Pause, look, think

Is beauty only uniform?

In different packages it comes

In more ways than one I am capable

My beauty is not just in my abilities

My strength is not just in my looks

My body is beauty in another shape

My skin colour a testimony to creativity

The glow of Love is genderless

When we shut the eye of hate

Ignore the voice of ignorance

We will clearly see the

Nooks and crannies of beauty

And forever appreciate

Beauty in all its diversity.

    The use of a panda image is a little ironic, as that species is slowly becoming extinct. The companion of diversity is change, and the phantom of change is extinction.

    Thanks everyone 🙂

    @Meggamat- Nice unintended irony but i chose the panda for the non racist, diversity slogan associated with it i.e. ‘ I am white, black and Asian”.
