A Job God Has Already Done

Those shades of skin,
Prioritized by next of kin.
And the ones who use color,
To address insecurities they defend...
Unfortunately today still represent,
Those exposing their foolishness...
With it believed a receiving of empathy,
From those whose minds have long ascended...
To know an enlightened consciousness,
Isn't limited to the surface to perceive life to live...
Once it is recognized with eyes wide open,
That nothing the Creator makes...
Is purposely not duplicated to compare,
But appreciate to share and experience...
What it takes to place each intricate piece,
Together to allow conflicts and racism to exist...
For those wishing in all of their self-righteousness,
A job God has already done with it from their point of view...
Could have been better done to do,
If God had requested from them an assistance.

'The scriptures say this.
The scriptures say that.'

And yet those who are hypocrites and quick to quote,
Scriptures to spill from their mouths to attack...
Show themselves less interested,
In what it is they have learned to quote...
Than living their lives to prove it done with them analyzed,
That scriptures they claim to follow with them quoted...
Should at least be shown by lives they live.
Instead of exposing themselves as 'annointed' hypocrities.

'The scriptures say this AND the scriptures say that.'

But...
Why does racism, chaos, conflicts and divisions exist,
If...
The hypocrites can quote scriptures,
With them so self-righteously learned...
Where are the benefits hidden to be kept?
Who keeps the profits with them believed to be earned?
