Life's Examination

A test
A simple test

God created man in his image
A creature filled with life

Blood flowing and
A heart beating 

Each being unique
Outside and in

The beauty of humanity
Always new

Each difference, though
Breeds collision

A simple separation:
Skin color

Black
White

Brown
Yellow

Such a fickle deviation
Produces such devastation

A test
Failed

Retaken throughout each generation
Sometimes passed, sometimes failed

Yet always taken
Through a simple difference in pigmentation
